D’Arcy Cleary Insurances KBTC Doubles Open
What a super week of tennis at the KBTC Open. The weather was perfect all week and the tennis was even better. The standard of tennis today for the finals was very high across all divisions. The ladies C and A finals were particularly closely fought matches so hard luck to Carmel and Teresa and Avril and Claire but well done on your outstanding efforts. Unfortunately, the 3rd set of the ladies B final couldn’t be played out due to injury. Wishing Marie O’Brien a speedy recovery. Well done to all the finalists today and a huge congrats to the winners.

Thanks to all the members who helped out in lots of different ways to make the week a success, from gardening, tidying up the courts and clubhouse, manning the desk each night, preparing food, washing up, mending a garden bench, but a special thanks to our captain Paul Hogan for supervising it all and to our chairperson, David Goode for the unenviable task of keeping it all recorded on tournament software! Thanks also to all those who came down to support the players each night.
Lastly, thanks to Alan D’Arcy of D’Arcy Cleary Insurances for once again providing sponsorship to KBTC.
