Early tournaments in 2024
There's under three months to go until Easter already, but there are
tournaments coming up from Aberdeen to the Isle of Wight,
from Belfast to Cork and from Nottingham to Peterborough, all before the
Easter Matchplay kicks off in Coventry. There is also the invitational
Grand Slam for winners of 'A' divisions and wildcards towards the end
Here's a round-up of the events coming in the next three months.
All the information, entry forms and contact details are on the main ABSP calendar.
Isle of Wight
- a three-day event, starting on the Friday afternoon, featuring two
10-game tournaments played back-to-back with promotion and relegation between divisions
at the half-way point. This tournament is organised by Steve Perry in conjunction with
Isle of Wight Tours.
Wayne Kelly is running the Grand Slam
event in late February in Warrington. This is an invitational event for players who have won an 'A' division tournament
since 2020, plus the most improved players from those years, the players with most runners-up spots and the most 'B' division wins,
the highest rated player not already qualified and the highest-rated youth player for the year.
Another busy weekend with a one-day tournament on both days, although players may be hard-pressed to play in both given they are over 400 miles apart!
The Saturday tournament is Chris Hawkins'
tournament organised by Neil Scott on the Sunday.
Of course, if anybody fancies the challenge of playing in both, we'd love to hear how you're managing it!
tournament takes place on the southern coast
of Ireland, the weekend after St Patrick's Day. Chris Broderick is the organiser for this two-day tournament.
Before we know it, the early Easter will be upon us. Wayne Kelly is organising a 4-day long weekend in Coventry that includes
the Warm-Up event
for warm-up on Good Friday and Saturday morning with the
running from Saturday afternoon to Easter Monday.
