Feelers were put out, (Due to players inquiring) to all teams below the Premier division grade on the holding of a junior individual players league along the lines of the Premier players individual league that has been running for the past 2 seasons not including this season.
However, after a lengthy six weeks of waiting only 14 players representing just 5 teams came back informing the committee that they would like to get involved in the junior individual league, needless to say the idea was scrapped.
Kathryn Hewitt was crowned ladies Satzenbrau singles champion and it was her team Ma Dullea’s who won the ladies A division cup while the High House ladies took the B division cup.
Stephen O’Connor and Jason Kavanagh were once again the Beamish new year doubles champions as they won out at St, Vincent’s while the Island Tavern were Beamish super cup winners and the Anglers were winners of the Beamish A division cup.
Rita Hannigan and Kathryn Hewitt took the CDO ladies doubles championship played at the Telecom club and Damien O’Driscoll was the Guinness individual champion, the Mountain were the Ma Dullea plate winners while Joe Long was awarded the Cork Indoor Sports Award for 2006.
