At the 33rd Arklow Open, Kilkenny's Mark Murphy added the Arklow Open Singles title to his Tralee title he won back in January. Selected at number 1 on the Irish team for the World Championships in August, Murphy defeated Noel O'Callaghan (Fermoy) by 2 games to 1. Aisling Hickey(Rossomre) continued her dominance of women's racquetball by winning the Womens Open Singles with a 2-0 victory over Majella Haverty(Castlebar).
Murphy made it a double when he teamed up with Stevis Quinn(Rossmore) to win the Open Doubles while Castlebar's Katie Kenny & Majella Haverty won the Womens Open Doubles.
A very successful tournament for the Arklow Club after the disapointment of cancelling last years tournament. Well done to all.
