West of Ireland Tennis Championships

The West of Ireland Tennis Championships took place over the weekend where three Ennis Tennis club players excelled. This prestigious competition attracts entries from all over Ireland and this year was no exception.
In the grade 3/4 singles with an entry of over 32 competitors, David Quinn made it all the way to the final but lost to the Enniskillen player who was stronger on the day.

His compatriot and new club captain, Bill Twomey also made it to a final, the grade 5/6 men's singles in which he narrowly lost. Bills' daughter Alice made it a family affair in going one better to win the grade 3/4 ladies singles title in impressive style. Alice, a student and member of the UCC tennis team put her hard training to work in winning the championship.

All in all a good start to the tennis year for Ennis Tennis Club!
