First Year Doubles- Killian Darcy and Conor White
These two students only took up the game at the start of this school year and have shown great improvement over this time. The standard was high and the cashel lads were defeated in two straight games by Michael Wheelan and Jamie Morrissey of Limerick. The lads are determined to be back next year with more experience under their belt.
Junior Singles- Jonathan Walsh.
The junior singles category is always a tough one and this year was no exception. Jonathan has just returned to the game following a hand injury but still played well against Kurt Bowes of Cork, however Bowes was the stronger player on the day and defeated Jonathan in two straight games.
