Junior Results 2021/2022

We have had a fantastic year of results from our dedicated juniors. All be it a paired back version to the number of tournaments held in 2021 due to covid restrictions.

Our juniors should be commended on the amount of practice hours on court, the number of tournaments travelled to within Leinster and outside of Leinster, the dedication and hard-work in coaching and squad lessons thorough the year of 2021. Please find below all the great achievements of our juniors for 2021 and 2022
