Ulster Colleges Soft Ball 60 X 30. Congratulations to Fiona Flood as she won the Ulster Colleges Soft Ball 60 X 30 Senior Singles representing Colaiste Oiriall, there she defeated club mate Aoibhinn Mc Cluskey who was representing Beech Hill, the only other game featuring club personal was with Oisin Hagan from St.Macartans College, Oisin lost the Intermediate singles semi-final to Ethan Mc Carron from Beech Hill College, well done Fiona, and hard luck to Aoibhinn & Oisin, unfortunately that was all that took part from the club on the day.
Juvenile Coaching & Leagues. The coaching is continuing and by today (Thursday) we hope to have a league set up for groups for this weekend, the coaching by design is to show basic skill and sort out problems so with the league running alongside we hope that the young players can put in to practise all that has been coached, the leagues will also act as a build up to the county championships, so get as much practise in as possible, check the link on phones for booking the alley for guarantee of slot!!!!!
Court Bookings. The new digital booking system for “booking” the alleys set up by Damon & Eoin seems to be working well, Shane has put up around the alleys sheets showing the “already” booked slots and the “QR” codes needed to book, any problems contact Eoin and all should be able to sort easily enough.
Adult County Championships. Any adult interested in playing in the county championships get your name into Eoin ASAP as all names needed into the County board for the 8th of November to draw up fixtures.
Mono League. The Mono league is ongoing and running smoothly, any outstanding games please get played up to date ASAP.
