Christian Duffy - Rookie of the Year at Stonehill College, Boston

(18 May 2020)

Christian Duffy has been chosen from all men’s Inter-varsity Sports as 'Rookie of Year' at Stonehill College, Massachusetts where he has just completed his freshman year. Christian is at Stonehill studying for a degree in Finance, having been awarded an Athletic (Tennis) and Academic Scholarship by the college. As an incoming freshman, Christian made an immediate impact with a very strong season, playing no. 2 singles and recognised as men’s 'Rookie of Week' 3 times amongst all university teams competing in the North East 10 Conference before the 2019-2020 season was curtailed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Christian has been a member of Elm Park since 2017, participating in our Championships and an active member of the men’s first team when he is back in Ireland. He and his partner Des Roche won the Grasscourt Championships Men’s Doubles in 2019, and he was runner up in the Mixed Doubles with his mum, Caroline O’Reilly (Caroline is a member of the Tennis Committee, is Ladies League Coordinator and Ladies 1st team player). Christian won the Grade 1 Munster Claycourt Tennis Singles Championships last July.

As a member of the club’s “Hitter” panel, Christian can be engaged for hitting sessions with members and has been very generous with his time in this regard.
