Stiga Killarney Junior Open
Killarney Table Tennis Club's junior players had a successful and enjoyable day at the Killarney Junior Open on Saturday, 29 October. Without doubt, the star of the day was brilliant Brielle Brady. In the U17 Girls' competition, Brielle had a spectacular win over number 1 seed, Aisling Healing, in a thrilling nail-biting 5 set match to book a place in the final, causing shockwaves in the Munster camp.
Brielle went on to beat Chloe O'Halloran in the final and gain her first U17 title. Our Killarney girls dominated the U14 Girls' competition, with Valentina taking first place, Lynn coming second and Brielle third. In the U12 Girls, Devon claimed second place.
The Killarney boys also put in some great performances with our two youngest players, Nykyta and Mathew coming second and fourth respectively in the U10 Boys.
In the U12 Boys, Nykyta finished in 6th place and Mathew was third in the U12 Plate event. Roman was on top form and reached U14 Boys Final where he played Gearoid.
The match went to five sets and was eventually won by Gearoid, but could easily have gone either way.
Eoin also played well and finished 9th in both the U14 and U17 Boys. Michael demonstrated that he is recovering his form by finishing third in U17 Boys and Roman reached the quarter-finals and finished in seventh place.
The competition was extremely well organised, thanks to the hard work of Paul, Jana and Anthony, both before and during the competition. Indeed, several of the adults present commented on how smoothly and efficiently the competition went. Well done to everybody and roll on the Munster Open!
