LURGAN Tennis Club had its fair share of success this year’s Ulster Open held at the Belfast Boat Club.

Defending under 18 champion David Acum from Lurgan was narrowly beaten in a very exciting and close two sets by Matthew McClurg of Ward Park.

However David did go on to retain the under 18 boys doubles title with his partner David McWhirter against the in form Christopher Madden McKee and David Weir.

Lurgan’s Sarah Muldoon won the under 18 novice plate competition as a problem with scheduling forced her out of the main novice competition.

She went on to partner club colleague Joanne Law in the under 21 girls doubles final where they lost to the strong ex-Ulster pairing of Shannon Andrews and Helen Harvey.

Caleb Ralston, from Lurgan, who is currently an under 12, was runner-up in the under 14 boys plate competition.

Although new to the tournament scene Emma Jayne Cahoon, Lurgan, won the 14 novice competition with her novice partner Rachel Goode, Lurgan, won the under 14 doubles plate.

Rachel also got to the semi-final of the under 14 plate and Rachel was runner-up in the under 14 novice competition.

The Dunedin 2012 champion Sophie Murray, Lurgan, won the under 21 girls singles title and got to the semi-final of the under 18s singles and was also semi-finalist in the under 18 girls doubles with Rebecca Campbell, Larne.
