Both Association RIBSA and NIBSA have joined together to organise this top 16 All Ireland Grand Prix Singles Championship each season. This event will be very prestigious and it hoped each season to grow the event and it promises to be a fantastic challenge to find the best player on the island each year.
The event was the best of 7 frames all the way to the title featuring the RIBSA Top 8 Senior player and the NIBSA Top 8 Senior Players. If any player in the top 8 were unavailable the next player on the rankings will be offered the place. The entry fee is £50.00 Sterling payable on the day.
RIBSA would like to congratulate Aaron on his success, NIBSA for organising the successful event and the 147 SC in Antrim for holding the event.
RIBSA would like to thank all the RIBSA players for travelling to Antrim and RIBSA are looking forward to holding the 2020 All Ireland Grand Prix Singles Championship next year.
