After a fortnight of play and some seventy-five games, the final matches were met with huge anticipation across the junior club.

Among the big winners this year was Gabriel Corrigan, who collected the under-14 and under-18 boys singles titles, as well as the under-14 boys doubles alongside partner Michael Flanigan. Among the girls, Katie Lowry secured both the under-14 singles and mixed doubles, alongside partner Cormac Burns.
