Munster Girls (&AH) v2
The Munster trio of Kerry O’Mahoney, Mair Kelly and Shelley Tobin travelled across the water again this weekend (February 8th & 9th, 2014) to compete in the second half of the Junior British League. They were coached by Alan Hurley. The girls were playing in Division Three.In October, they were 6-0 winners against Ulster B, but a stronger team from Ulster this time around meant a very tight match. Kerry’s two wins and one from Mair were enough for them to share the points, 3-3. The afternoon match against Wales B saw the three Munster players undefeated. And a 5-1 win over Norton Draycott put the Munster girls in a good position at the end of the first day’s play.Next up, Batts B – not to be taken lightly as this was a drawn match last time out. But all three of the girls performed superbly and won all their matches. So with one left to play, there was every chance of a good result!They could not afford to lose to Ashford Brunswick, and in October they had won comfortably. But things were not going to be so easy this time, and after Kerry lost in the fifth set in the first match, alarm bells started to ring faintly! Then Mair and Shelly were beaten too! So 3-0 down at half-way, one more loss and they were consigned to runners-up spot! But they rallied well (no pun intended) and first Kerry, then Shelly and finally Mair won their second matches under pressure to halve this match and put the Munster Girls on top of Division Three! They will play in Division Two next season!Kerry was the top player in the Division across the two weekends, winning 17 of her 20 matches! The others weren’t far behind, both finishing in the Top 7!Well done to the players and NPC Alan Hurley!Meanwhile, in Division One of the Boys’ competition, Munster’s Alan Walsh was helping the Irish Boys to second place with team-mates Zak Wilson and Ryan Farrell.Click here for more information (ETTA web-site).

Report on South coast tt Challenger Kinsale  Kinsale ChallengerThere’s a new club in Munster, and they have arrived with a bang! South Coast Table Tennis Club hosted one of Munster’s best Challenger Events yet! These STIGA-sponsored events are very popular, and this one attracted sixty children from Cork and Kerry to play in Kinsale Community School, the first time this venue has hosted a table tennis tournament – but judging by today, certainly not the last!As usual, there was a Group phase, where the players were encouraged to get to know each other and where experienced players were drawn with novices to help them along – all players were advised to look on these as “practice”. This also allowed the organisers to observe the less well-known players to allocate them into Divisions for the serious business ahead.And serious it was, especially in Divison 1, where some of Munster’s best juniors were playing. Usaamah Hussain was unstoppable, only his club-mate Adam Lazaryev getting anywhere close, and they finished first and second respectively.There were 14 players in the next tier, so they were split into Divisions 2A and 2B. Silke Heinen was a clear winner of Division 2A, but it was very tight for second, with Thuy Linh Cashman edging Alex Flynn and Liam Proudford who all had the same number of wins. In Division 2B, the ever-smiling boys from Ballincollig, Ciaran O’Donoghue and Cian Ross made it through to the semi-finals. But it was the Leeside girls who won both semis, and Thuy Linh reversed the earlier result against Silke to take the win in Division 2.There were some new faces in Division 3, and with six wins from six in 3A, William Jefferies looked a strong favourite! But in the division semi-final, he played the runner-up from Division 3B, Luke Murdoch, who rallied from an earlier defeat by Andrew Breen of Tralee to beat Andrew in the final, despite being four years younger than his opponent! Another Division win for Leeside.Division four was easy pickings for Scott McElroy, who won eight straight matches to take the title, beating Nick Macleod in a tense final.And in Division 5, Ciaran Fogarty had to fight very hard in the final to take the last of the big prizes, beating Shona O’Sullivan in the final.Between the Group stage and the Divisions, most players got at least nine matches in a hugely enjoyable day of table tennis.Thanks as always to the series sponsor, Tommy Fitzgerald (STIGA), who provided the match balls and an array of prizes. And a huge thanks to Bev Scannell and Sophie Healy-Thow, who did Trojan work to help the event to run smoothly. There was great support from the parents and coaches from other clubs too; events like this depend hugely on these volunteers.
