Junior & Minor Tennis Champions
Junior & Minor
Templeogue Tennis Club hosted the Junior Tennis finals on Tuesday 21st May. Both Junior teams were incredibly strong, comprising of committed and passionate tennis players across 2nd, 3rd and 4th Years.
Junior 1 team bet CBC Monkstown 5-0 and Junior 2 team bet Clongowes 4-1. All ten courts saw excellent games of tennis from both schools. This sees the Junior 1 trophy returning to the College again after last year’s 2018 stay in the trophy cabinet. The Junior 2 trophy is welcomed back to the College for the first time since 1995.
At the prize giving, both captains Callum O’Brien (Junior 1) and James Sheridan (Junior 2) gave thanks to all at Templeogue Tennis Club for hosting the event, their respective opponents for the great games, Blackrock College staff, and the committee of the Leinster Schools Tennis Union who work tirelessly to organise the competition, without whom, none of it would be possible.
