Leinster Senior Open – Results
LEINSTER OPEN 2016
The Leinster Open took place at the weekend and was a great success. There was some super squash with the
Women’s & Men’s A Finals both containing the top seeds – Sophie O’Rourke played Hannah Craig and Sean Conroy played Steve Richardson.
In the Women’s final it was a really super match. Sophie worked really hard to level the game at 2 all but the effort she put in doing this went against her in the 5th where she was very tired. Hannah was very determined and playing some really super squash closed out the match. In the Men’s final the ever young, Steve Richardson played the young
Sean Conroy. In a match with some scintillating rallies and some super retrieving from both players, the crowd were on the edge of their seats. Sean is a full time professional, now based in Bristol but Steve was able to keep up to the pace, which belied his older age. It was very close, but in the end Sean won it 3-1.
In the A/B play off Conor Moran and Dara O’Flynn won their last matches to finish top of the play off. In the Men’s C section Frank Donnelly played John Doyle from Wexford. In getting to the final, Frank played some lovely controlled squash, showing all his experience. John finally won it 3-2, in another great final.
A very well run and successful Leinster Open. Congratulations to Gerry Delaney and his team for running the tournament. See all the results below.
