Junior Doubles saw two sets of brothers from Kells compete. Peter and Patrick Funchion played Diarmuid and Brendan Burke in a very entertainig game with both games going to the last ace with victory to Patrick and Peter Funchion, the game to follow was the Intermediate doubles final with Ducksy Walsh and Eddie Bourke taking on Ciaran Neary and William Love with some great powerful serving and kill shots on display and victory going to Ducksy Walsh and Eddie Bourke.

Once again great display of serving and kill shots were on display with Meath winning.Well done to all Kilkenny players who took part in this competition.
