Matchplay Spring Finals

Congratulations to all our Junior Players who were in action over the weekend in the National Spring Matchplay Finals. Just to reach this stage is a great achievement but LLTC can be proud of the outstanding tennis displayed by our players. Charlie Barry won the boys u-14 title which was played at Sligo LTC in a tight battle by wining in a 3rd set tie break. Congratulations Charlie. Meanwhile in Waterford we had 3 boys competing in the U-16 finals, Will O'Callaghan upset the seedlings to finished 3rd having being narrowly beaten in the semi final by the eventual winner. James Halas and James Kemmy performed very well in their first visit to the National Matchplays with a 8th place and 15th place finish respectively. Finally Roisin Moore flew the flag for our Junior Girls when she finished 7th in the Girls u-12 played in Portadown. It's very encouraging to see our Juniors in such good form particularly with the Junior South of Ireland starting this Sunday.
