The midnight oil was burnt again in Balgriffin Hall where the cup finals took place on Friday 20th April. A very exciting night of table tennis was watched by a capacity crowd.
The Division 1 cup was between Terenure1 and Balgriffin 1. Balgriffin lead the singles encounters by 6-3 so were one match away from winning the cup. However, Terenure team had other ideas, they had very convincing wins in all of the regular match doubles. The match was 6 all and deciding doubles beckoned. The Balgriffin lads, Paul Norgrove/Romain Barth won the first two games 11/9 in both, but Terenure stars of Tommy Fitzgerald / Mia O’Rahilly came back fighting, winning 11/5,11/9,11/9, thereby will be collecting the division 1 cup next Saturday night 28th in Leinster Table Tennis Club. A special thanks to Terry McKeon for umpiring the deciding doubles in her usual professional manner. Final result Terenure 7 Balgriffiin 6.
The Division 4 cup was also played between Pingzone 3 and Leixlip 3. Pingzone lead 5-4 going into the doubles. Leixlip proved too strong in the doubles pairings, winning all three and the last doubles going to a 5 setter, winning 11/7 in the final set. Final result Leixlip 7 Pingzone 5. See you all next Saturday night in Leinster Club.
