ULSTER BANK WINTER LEAGUE 2012 RESULTS
After one of the closest Winter Leagues for years with all but one of the four sections going to the last day in some fantastic last day action, here’s how the event panned out…
The Ladies B was the exception to the rule with the Kay Curley in sparkling form throughout the change of racket and string tension has reinvented Kay’s overall game (with Kay’s scones finishing top of the pile). Joan Grennan on 77 points just held off the challenge of Elaine Kivlehan .The ladies A saw Ann Mc Kiernan finish third but it was the big hitting Noreen Cassidy that took the honours from Ger Lowry with only 3 points separating these after a real ding dong battle over the last few months .
The Mens B was another fantastic section and there were 5 or 6 men trying to get on the honours list come the final day Patsy Elhinney finished a creditable third with Micheal O Halloran and Conor O Grady battling for the winners enclosure but it was the wise experienced Michael O Halloran who took the tittle with a great scoring average throughout the weeks, Conor O Grady returning to the sport finishing second is one to keep an eye on.
The Mens A was the tightest section of all and the milder weather seen a return of Winter League action for John Burke and he showed he has lost no hunger for the sport where the stylish John took the tittle with his lovely serve and punched volleyed tennis. Eammon Mc Cafferty had to settle for second despite a great score of 77 with the Captain Liam Farrell playing some of his best tennis finishing third. Many thanks to Ulster Bank for there kind sponsorship once again.
