What a season it has been, it just kept getting better! As far as play is concerned the season has ended with no more Monday and Wednesday night badminton. The usual end of season fun tournament was played on last Thursday night week and the results were as follows:
  • Ladies winners were Carmel Hudson and Suzanne Keane, in second place were Louise Behan and Michelle Corridan.
  • Mens winners were Ivan O’Brien and Padraig Kearney and in second place were James Flaherty and Micheal Nolan.

On Tuesday of last week the Division 3s played County in the Kerry League final in Ballyheigue, they got off to a slow start losing both Singles but came back with a bang winning both Doubles and all three Mixed for a super 5-2 win. The team was Helen Browne, Carmel Hudson, Jeanelle Griffin, Francine Collins, Kevin Kennelly captain, James Sheehan, James Flaherty and John Mulvihill.

On Wednesday it was the turn of the Division 4’s who played Killarney in Castleisland. They won both the Ladies Singles and Doubles but lost the Men’s doubles in a tight three setter and also the second mixed  but in convincing fashion they won first and third Mixed, another 5-2 victory. The team was Louise Behan, Krystle Crowley, Eleanor Sheehan, Timmy Noonan, Jamie Elliott, Timmy Hanrahan and Padraig Kearney. Three League titles for the club, the Division 2s having won earlier.
On Friday night a break was taken from the courts and 45 members and friends headed to The Ballyroe Heights Hotel to join over 100 players from other clubs for the annual prizegiving Kerry Dinner Dance. This event was organised by The Moyvane club this year and was a resounding success.

Division 2 league captain Pat Kearney. Division 3 captain Kevin Kennelly and Division 4 Captain, Krystle Crowley accepted the trophies on behalf of their teams.
On Sunday it was on to UL for the Munster League Finals. Unfortunately the Division 2 team were unable to field a team so they couldn’t take part, but the club was ably represented by the Division 3 & 4 teams. The 4s (grade G) were first on court and they defeated Rathgormack in the Quarter Final and UL in the Semi Final and had a wonderful  4-3 win over Carrigaline in the Final. Munster League champions Division 4. Well done to Louise Behan, Krystle Crowley, Eleanor Sheehan, Timmy Noonan, Jamie Elliott, Timmy Hanrahan and Padraig Kearney and managers Dermot Keane and Carmel Hudson. The Division 3s (grade F) had a bye to the Semi Finals where they defeated Waterford and in the Final enjoyed a 4-2 win over Templemore. The team was Helen Browne, Carmel Hudson, Jeanelle Griffin, Francine Collins, Kevin Kennelly, James Sheehan, James Flaherty and John Mulvihill. Manager Pat Kearney. Both teams will now contest the All Ireland Finals in Baldoyle on Saturday, May 10. This is a wonderful achievement for a great little club! Take a bow, Moyvane is proud of you.
