Reddan’s Senior Club Championships – Sept 2020
Reddan’s 2020 Club Championships came to a close last Saturday 26th in glorious September sunshine.
Congrats to everyone who participated during the course of the last month in helping 2020 to become one of the most successful Club Championships ever.
We had 74 players, 104 entries, 136 matches played across 11 events.
Thanks so much to my Competitions Committee for their great ranking and pairing of players across all the events, we had so many tight deciders in so many groups and led to really exciting tennis.
Overall at the semi-final stage 9 matches were decided by a deciding Championship tie breaker and 3 matches in the finals went to a decider.
Prizes this year were vouchers for the Bridge Gallery store in Ballina so happy shopping to all the winners and runners-up – some fantastic pieces to choose from and Arek will be delighted to give you some help.
Thanks to the continued support from Reddan’s Bar in Killaloe, it has been so difficult for many businesses this year but COVID-19 failed to derail the long standing tradition of Reddan’s supporting our Championships and even though the prize-giving wasn’t the same away from our corner in Reddan’s, I’m sure we’ll be back soon enough to help support Pat and Ma Reddan.
For anyone yet to pay your fees please head onto https://www.itsplainsailing.com/club/kbtc and you can pay there. Much appreciated to all those who have already paid. The app has been a real help during these times without the clubhouse open.
