Tralee Tennis Club hosted their annual Ladies’ Day last Saturday which was very generously sponsored by Ross Jewellers. It was a fantastic day from start to finish, with the club decorated in style for this very elegant event. Banners, beautiful bunting and flower baskets in bloom were on display with a perfectly dressed function room for the evening prize giving. All the ladies turned up in their glamorous tennis attire looking dazzling and very cosmopolitan.
The weather was mostly glorious with the rain holding off and everyone was in fantastic form while some great afternoon of high-level tennis got underway.
The competition was divided into three groups, Ruby, Sapphire and Emeralds in keeping with our lovely Sponsors Ross Jewellers. There was really exciting tennis from all three groups. The standard was incredible; some matches were extremely tight and entertaining to watch. As the finalists of each group battled it out on court for the title, spectators watched from the side-lines and balcony cheering on with excitement.
Following the fabulous tennis, there was a beautiful meal awaiting all the ladies in the decorative function room. This was a very welcome treat, greatly organised by our fantastic Lady Captains Mags O’Grady and Siobhán O’Nualláin. Concluding the event were spectacular prizes of stunning Jewellery, presented by Heather O’Sullivan and Sandrene Brassil of John Ross Jewellers.
Winners of the Ruby group were Kate Falvey and Christine O’Sullivan, runners up Roberta Kneeshaw and Alison Walsh. Winners of Sapphire were Jill Fitzgerald and Sorcha Finnegan, with runners up Elaine Larkin and Miriam Rohan/Fiona Brick (subbing). The winners of Emerald were Jean Hollywood and Kate Guerin, runners up Margret Shea and Claire Salmon. The entire event was a smashing success and fantastically organised. All the ladies are looking forward to their next event.
