This year’s edition of the Irish Ladder Tournament will be starting at the end of January. The ladder is the first qualification stage in the Irish Championship. If you wish to join the event, please email Ian Davis at sivadnai at gmail.com. Admittedly, it is possible to join the ladder later in the year, but bear in mind that you will then always start from the bottom if you do so. So it pays to join now! Everyone who wants to play must be a paid up member of the IGA.
