Know Your Sport

Leader Board

US Open Golf – Brooks Koepka pulled away from the field on the last day with a score of -16 to take home the $2 million paycheck to give 8 points to those who picked ‘Other’!

Lions Tour – It is so rare to finish a drawn series we almost didn’t include it as an option in Know Your Sport! NZ took the first game before the Lions rallied to take Game 2 setting up the ‘winner takes all’ Game 3. A 15-15 draw in the final game left many with mixed emotions & first drawn series since 1955.

Wimbledon Tennis – Serena Williams’ pregnancy robbed 3/4’s of our entrants a chance to win points in the Women Singles. Her sister Venus tried to keep the trophy in the family by reaching the final but was comprehensively beaten by Garbine Muguruza 7-5, 6-0 in 77 minutes. In the Men’s event, Roger Federer claimed his 8th Wimbledon title beating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in a competition plagued with injuries to the main stars.

The Tour de France is into its final week & anything can happen in the closing stages with huge mountain climbs & time trials to be navigated by Chris Froome & the chasing pack. The event finishes Sunday, July 23rd, in Paris.

***Ladies Football 2017***

Hi Everyone,
As we all know the GAA season will be officially kicking-off with the Spring League next week. In the meantime, we are looking to gauge if any of you have any interest in helping out with the Ladies Football team in any way this coming year? Whether that means devoting your time to a few training sessions throughout the summer (even if that’s just to pick-up some cones, help put up nets etc.) or being a key part of our coaching/managerial team for the whole year; we would love to hear from you. Our projected numbers this year are through the roof so we’d love all hands on deck!
Please contact Mandy Doohan or Maria Eviston at to further discuss your interest and begin planning the year ahead.
Thanks a mill,
The Ladies Football Team
