Major battles took place on the night with John O'connor and Linda Fergus coming out on top in section one, closely followed by Seamus Haughey and Elaine Tonna Barteth and Hakan Hjalmers and Ursula Duffy.

On the next three courts Ronan Mac Ruairi and Sharon Hjalmers took victory followed by Bernadette Mccreanor, John Gogarty, John Farrell and Elizabeth Kenny in joint second place. Freda Laverty claimed the winners egg in the next section with Joanne Lavelle coming in second place.

The doubles league is through week six and with only one week left, tensions are rising to boiling point. This is the first time the club have had a promotion and relegation system in practice. Players for the first time have an opportunity to move up the ranks based on merit.

The highest scores in the mens doubles this week with 13 points were shared between Stanley Wilson, Breffni Holihan, Hakan Hjalmers and Ciaran Kinney. In the ladies doubles Vicky Spaight and Nicola Fee achieved a very creditable 18 points.

Dundalk's first ever singles open Competition takes place over a period of two on the weekend of 20th-22nd and 27th - 29th April. Closing date for entry is Friday 13th April. This competition is kindly sponsored by Kevin Commins, KC Deli.
