The Noel Treacy Memorial Cup Tournament attracted a large number of Castleview Tennis Club members last Saturday evening, They entered the tournament to remember the late Noel Treacy and enjoy a great night of tennis and craic.

The Tournament was divided into two separate competitions, the first comprising players from Grade 5 and 6 and the second comprising Grade 4 upwards.

Weather conditions were perfect for the competition.

Members brought home baked goodies and savoury snacks and a tipple or two to enjoy post match.

The night culminated in two toughly contested final battles on centre court, eagerly watched by an excited and supportive crowd.

The Grade 1 to 4 Cup was clinched by Wayne Everett and Laura Diffily, who beat Nichola Everett and Lee Murphy in an energetic and close final.

The Grade 5 and 6 Cup was won by Sean Keogh and Caroline Connolly, who beat Brendan Gleeson and Carol Keogh in an eagerly fought and exciting final.

Congratulations to all who participated in the night and who made it so enjoyable and to the Treacy Family for the fantastic prizes for the winners.

No doubt the Cup winners will keep them well for next year’s event.

Castleview congratulates four of its members, who won the Ladies Four event at the Lena Rice Memorial Day Cup competition in New Inn.

Lena Rice was the only Irish lady to ever play in Wimbeldon and an inspiration for all lady players today at both local Club and Competitive levels.

The team of ladies clinching the title consisted of Phil Power, Geri Hickey, Breda Dunne and Penny Alvarez.

Congratulations to the team. Castleview is always proud when its members travel to neighbouring clubs to compete.
