This coming weekends sees the largest female only Handball event GAA handball has ever run, with a record breaking 190+ players ranging from 8 years of age through to 50+ descend on venues across Mayo & Sligo for the 2020 She's Ace Festival Weekend.
The elite ladies kick off on Friday for a national ranking event, and we have a fantastic turnout of 20 entries. Group games will be played in a timed format this year due to the big numbers, and this is sure to add another exciting twist to this excellent event.
The 4-Wall continues for the elite ladies on Saturday, and also sees all the other grades (Ladies B, Ladies Challenger, 17&U, 15&U, 13&U, 11&U) compete in a 1 day tournament in the 4-Wall code, as a total of 10 courts sees action all day. The climax of Saturday is the FINALS NIGHT in Aughagower, with the 15&U, 17&U and Ladies Open Finals competing to the traditionally packed gallery.
Sunday then sees the attention switch to 1-Wall, and in a more fun orientated day, we have grades including 11&U, Mixed Team, Beginners Challenge, and Mother & Daughter Doubles.
- Friday - Elite Ladies 4-Wall
- Saturday - All 4-Wall grades
- Saturday Night - 4-Wall Finals Night

We will have updates throughout Friday & Saturday on our social media channels, and internet dependent we hope to live stream some of the Ladies Open grade on Saturday.
