Annual Racquet-ball Competition Finals

Last Thursday saw the finals of the Racquet-ball Competition with Neil Perry against Roger Jackson in the main competition and Mick Connell against Colin Ward in the Plate. the presentations to the winners were made by the club President, Ed Green.

Roger fought hard and played with his usual accuracy and touch, but in the end Neil was too strong and came out 3 – 0 winner in a high quality and very entertaining game.


The plate final wasn’t really as close… and I say that as the player on the wrong end of the 3-0 result! Mick throughly deserved his win and was clearly pleased enough to want a selfie with Ed when he received the trophy.


Editorial Note: Some Facebook users may have been surprised to see a certain Paul O’Reilly proudly holding the Plate (see below). Perhaps the ability to emerge victorious in a competition he didn’t even enter is testimony to Paul’s extraordinary skills on court? Or perhaps he just found the opportunity to wind-up Mick too irresistible!
