If a player wins their first game, this prevents them from being eligible for the plate competition thereafter. All potential plate games have been scheduled to allow for cases where a player who has come through the preliminary round faces an opponent who is playing their very first game. You can only play in the plate if you lose your very first game.'
It is also important to note that Eye Guards/ Goggles are mandatory and must be worn by all players.
Courts numbered 1, 2 & 3 are in the Mattie McDonagh Centre Ballygar and Court 4 is Mount Talbot Handball Alley. If weather deteriorates, all games scheduled for Mount Talbot will be transferred to Four Roads Community Centre. (1.5miles away)
