Juveniles. We have the leagues drawn up for the juveniles and this will begin week starting the 23rd of January, it is very important all players and coaches check the sheets on the notice board as to what night and what time they are on as we had to move some about to fit the leagues in, we hope this doesn’t cause any problems. Coaches can adjust the rules to the playing ability of each of the leagues we leave it up to each set of coaches. Until that week the coaching is on as per normal for all, also we ask all county champions to get in as much practise as possible as the Ulster competitions are just around the corner.

County Competitions. All the county competitions from U21, Nov4 to Nov1, Junior, Senior and Master fixtures are on the notice board in St.Mellans check when you are playing and insure you fulfil all fixtures.

Ulster Competitions. Also on the notice board are the Ulster fixtures with some of Irelands best handballers on display check it out and write times into your diary, (also be careful when booking the alley around these dates as the alley must allocated to these games).

Get Well. The club would like to wish Mickey Todd a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in the alley in the near future.
