Another busy weekend of league matches with our teams competing well in their various groups. I would also like to congratulate Max Vidal who won the U16 Boys Doubles event in Bushy Park over the weekend, coming through the final 6-2 6-2. Great result for Max who is still U14, very well done!
The second week of Junior League saw saw some tough competition for Sandycove. First up was the rescheduled U14 Girls match against Naas after last weeks heavy rain! Unfortunately Naas had a very strong team with some Leinster players on board so it was a tough day at the office for our girls. Not to be kept down for long, our girls bounced back the following day with a brilliant 3-0 win over Leopardstown away with our pairings of Eva Kane/ Rebecca McNally, Emilie and Lucy O’Brien and Maedbh LeRoux/ Cara Fitzgearld all winning comfortably. Our U14 Boys Team 1 who are up in Class 1, were away on Sunday over in Sutton and met with a very tough Sutton team. The boys fought hard and there was a some great tennis and long games, however the 3 points went to Sutton on the day. U14 Boys Team 2 were away also, over in Carraig and for the second week in a row the boys nabbed all 3 points! Well done to our pairings of Sam O’Rourke/ Cian Murphy, Cillian Murphy/ Max Kane and Aidan Leahy/Conor Flanagan.
Lastly, our U18 Boys had another cracking week with a 3-0 win over Glenageary. Second week in a row picking up 3 points and so are top of the table. Big well done to Will Fitzgearld, Harry Wall and Caoimhin Cronin/ Sam Hughes. Thank you again to all players, subs who stepped in this week and Team Managers.
