The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

A TAL­ENTED sport­ing duo from Tralee de­fended their na­tional ti­tle to reap a third con­sec­u­tive All-Ire­land ti­tle in rac­quet­ball.

JJ Bonn and Michael Lynch of the Tralee Rac­quet­ball Club took gold in the Over-50 Male Dou­bles cat­e­gory of the All-Ire­land Rac­quet­ball Cham­pi­onships in Castle­bar at the week­end in an­other great vic­tory for the pair.

In do­ing so, they weath­ered the in­tense com­pe­ti­tion of the Kilkenny pair­ing of Billy Walsh and John Rams­bot­tom in a fi­nal that went all the way to a thrilling tie-breaker af­ter the sec­ond game.

Not to let some­thing like a lit­tle un­due pres­sure or Kilkenny com­pe­ti­tion get the bet­ter of them, JJ and Michael dis­patched the op­po­si­tion on a score­line of 15/4, 7/15, 11/4 in an­other great per­for­mance for the King­dom.
