The Short Mat Players Tour is delighted to announce a new event on the calendar for the 2013-14 season: The Irish Open Singles.
As promised, the SMPT have reviewed our successful first season and having studied the overwhelming amount of positive feedback received from you the players, it’s been agreed to give you what you want! We will be returning to the Belfast Indoor Bowls Club on 14th & 15th September 2013 for the inaugural Irish Open.
Following the outstanding World Masters event there in April, we are delighted to be returning to the home of Short Mat Bowls in Ireland. This tournament will not count towards the world rankings for the forthcoming 2013-14 season, however once it has proven to be a success it is our intention that the Irish Open will form part of our ranking programme for the 2014-15 season and beyond.
We are now taking entries for the Irish Open. For further details on this and the rest of our 2013/14 schedule please visit the tournaments section of our site.
