Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - RACQUETBAL­L Euro­pean cham­pi­onships

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.
