Naas LTC Men’s 1st team win class 1

As you may have heard Naas LTC’s Men’s first team won the DLTC class 1 final at Castleknock today, beating a very strong Fitzwilliam 1st team 2-1.

The first doubles pairing, and first to finish, for Naas were the team co-captains Jack Hughes and Paul Fitzgerald.  Despite losing the first set 6-3 the two combined very effectively to win the second and third sets 6-4 6-3.  First blood to Naas.

The second doubles pairing for Naas were Declan Gardiner and Dorian Kos.  They had a nightmare first set, losing 6-1.  In the second set they managed to battle to 6 all and, despite going 5-1 down in the tie break, they fought back to win this set 7-6.  Unfortunately they lost the third set 6-2.

One all.

The third doubles pairing, and the last to finish, were Alan Donnelly and Ari Knox.  They won the first set 6-4 but lost the second by the same score line.  At 4 all in the third Naas managed to break serve, with Alan Donnelly serving for the match.  They came up against two very determined Fitzwilliam players who managed to break back.  After another tough game Naas broke again, with Ari now lining up to serve for the match.  Again Fitzwilliam came back strongly and forced a break point, which Naas managed to save.  At this point the crowd were feeling anxious, we can only imagine what the players were feeling!  After gaining an advantage in the game Naas won this game with a stunning smash from Alan, which can be seen on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/naastennis/).

On behalf of the club we would like to say congratulations to the players involved today, and to all players who played league this year on your performances.

We would also like to say thank you to everybody who came up to watch the match and support the team today.  It was obvious that Naas had a very high number of supporters at the match, the roar that is heard in the video on Facebook does not do what was heard at the final point justice.

Roll on summer league!!!!!
