In the best interests of our Members, the ITBA has made the decision to postpone our upcoming AGM. The event was due to be held in the Irish Sports HQ (NGB Building), on Tuesday, 28th April.
This is to ensure the safety of our Members and your families at this difficult time, which is our primary consideration.
Alternative arrangements for this event will be shared in due course.
Due to the ongoing health issue and with current travel restrictions in place, in the best interest of bowlers, coaches, managers etc. we have made the decision to postpone the Senior Triple Crown scheduled for 24th to 26th April 2020.
has not been an easy decision but as things are changing daily and the
uncertainty of how long this will go on, we thought it best to make the
decision now rather than wait any longer.
We wish you all well in this very difficult and unprecedented time.
Stay Safe Everyone!
