For more then 10 years BTTC has had a policy of not allowing U14 boys and girls play in their Senior Open events. This is the case once again this year. Prior to the BTTC open two ranking competition events have taken place which have allowed U14 competitors play in the senior event and have awarded ranking points. Unfortunately Munster are not in a position to award ranking points for the BTTC open as we are not allowing U14 competitors.
This decision by Munster should in no way diminish the senior competitions. Ballincollig is a strong supporter of senior events and will be holding the senior competition this weekend. There is good support for the event from both the clubs and our sponsors and it it important for everyone that the event goes ahead.
We look forward to welcoming all players to the event.
