Toni shines in Hamburg
CONGRATULATIONS to Antonia (Toni) Neary from Arklow who travelled to Hamburg, Germany, from September 5 to 10 as part of the Irish team for the 20th European Racquetball Championships.
Toni took home a gold medal and two silver medals from the championships.
Both the men and women’s Irish team came away with gold after some impressive games against their host country Germany in the final.
In the individual events, Arklow’s Toni then battled her way to the final to compete against her teammate Majella Haverty (Mayo), but it wasn’t to be as Majella pulled ahead and won the final.
It was an all Irish Final for the doubles with Toni then teaming up with Olivia Downey(Galway) to take on the All-Ireland Doubles Champions Majella and Katie Kenny (Mayo) in the Womens Open Doubles Final. However, the pair proved too strong.
Arklow Racquetball Club is currently holding a club night every Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm in Coral Leisure Centre.
Please check out Arklow Racquetball Club on Facebook for more information. All player levels welcome.
