After the great success of the inaugural Kingscourt Shoot-Out last January, the online entry is now live for the second instalment which will take place on January 5/6 next.
While the adult singles will take place on the Saturday, this year the organisers have added two juvenile doubles grades (U14 and U16 boys) on the Sunday.
The adult singles tournament (Saturday, January 5) is open to minor, junior and intermediate players and is on a first come, first served basis.
The tournament is limited to 32 players - there will be two players on standby in case of drop-outs. Entry fee is non-refundable.
Adult singles format:
- Players 1-16 are seeded.
- All players must be in attendance at 9.30am for the draw
- 1-16 in one pot and 17-32 (random) in the other.
- The draw will be streamed live on Facebook.
- Games serve off at 10am and are run off on a 20-minute or first to 31 format.
- First round losers drop into the B.
- Entry fee is €20
- All players receive a free t-shirt and at least two games
- Free food on the day
- There will be vouchers for the winners in each grade
Meanwhile, the U14 and U16 doubles the following day will be limited to eight teams per division and all teams are guaranteed three matches (20-minute timed format). Entry fee is €30 per team and is also on a first come, first served basis.
