Congratulations to Robert Fahey on regaining the title of World Champion from Camden Riviere! Day One saw Fahey down three sets to one; he then took all four sets on Day Two. The first two sets of the Final Day went to Riviere, then Fahey won the third and fourth sets to win the championship seven sets to five.

Rob’s ancestry includes Irish blood, from the 1855 Loughrea emigrant James Fahey.

The Dublin real tennis court hosted the World Championship event in 1890, and we continue to work towards its return to play.
