10 Jun Causeway Senior Open Review 2009
The finals of our Senior Open Week were held last Sunday at the Causeway. This year, we had 17 events from grades 2 to grades 6/7 combined. This is a major annual event for the Club and this year once again attracted a large entry.
The event was very kindly sponsored by Enrights Eurospar and Lawlors Hotel. The Tournament commenced on Sunday 31st with glorious weather and this continued throughout the week with just one break on semi-finals day last Saturday 6th.
Once again, this event was well supported by teams from Castleview, Hillview, Ballypatrick, Kilkenny, Bishopstown, Lower Aghada, St Annes, Tramore and Tipperary. It was great to see a great turnout from the Causeway, with both old and new members- with Causeway members participating in 11 of the 17 final events.
The Tournament Committee would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our sponsors, Enrights Eurospar and Lawlors Hotel for their generous sponsorship and support, to our brilliant Club Captain, Cashel Corby and her team of willing helpers who continued to welcome and provide everyone over the week with a fantastic supply of food and drinks (and a TV for the French Open Final!), to ALL Club members who provided cover and valuable assistance to Miriam at the ‘tournament desk’ and to our FAS workers for preparing the clubhouse each day. A great team effort and well done to everyone.
