PJ Nolan said this 147academy Girls Championship will hopefully become a regular event on the RIBSA Calendar and I hope it will encourage more young girls to take up our sport.

RIBSA would like to thank the 147academy for sponsoring the event, all the girls for turning up and the Ivy Rooms for hosting the event. We hope to see you all back next year.
