PADDY BOLLINGBROOKE CUP FINAL.
What a trilling final between Ollie Cassidy & Philip Feerick V Kevin Geraghty & Martin Mulhern. This match was always going to be a cracker as it's the 10th anniversary of the tournament. Philip and Martin showed that they were well able to keep up with the more experienced Geraghty and Cassidy. This games had all the ebbs and flows of great final with little separating the two teams. However, one always felt that Cassidy and Feerick were going to edge it when it came down to a battle. There were some class shots and kills from all the players with Cassidy and Feerick finishing it out to win 21-16 21-16 well done to all four for giving us great entertainment. Thanks to all those who attended these great finals and showed their support for the players!

Some brilliant action from last nights games two of the best games we seen to date. The first game was a cracker with Adrian Feerick and Jennifer Fahey against Aidan Mc Nulty and Roger Durkin. Jennifer and Adrian led first game but Aidan and Roger came back to win first game with the second game going to Jennifer and Adrian followed by a trilling tiebreak 21-17 to Aidan and Roger. Game two saw Peter Callaghan and Peter Cassidy play Fergal Harte and Tom Fleming some great shots on display by these boys, however the two Peters upped the game to take it in two straight games! A great evening and thanks to all the spectators who came! Well done to all great to see our young people giving such entertainment!

After a very successful meeting with a large attendance it was decided to host the Paddy Bollingbrooke Competition from strictly 9th of May to the final in the 18th of May which gives us a window of over a week for weather conditions etc. The format will be a doubles competition open to SWINFORD and Kiltimagh. So far we have over 20 players competing with more to come. As it's the 10th anniversary of the renovation and revival of the club we are hoping to make this the best Paddy Billingbrooke to date.
