2016 IPA Brighton Tour event

No Comments

It has been brought to our attention that the fifth IPA Tour event for 2016 at the Brighton Hilton Metropole Hotel is now clashing with the Blackball International (BI) World Championships, which are being staged in Killarney, Ireland.

The IPA is extremely disappointed that this has happened and the impact that it will have on several of its players, forcing them to choose between two important events in the blackball calendar.

The IPA notified all relevant Blackball bodies (including Blackball International) of its 2016 dates in July of 2015, many months in advance of the BI decision to stage it’s World Championships, which makes the clash even more frustrating for both players and officials.

In order to draw a line under the issue and to help players in their planning, the IPA is confirming that it’s Brighton date will remain unchanged for 2016 – we still hope a solution can be found but it is now out of our hands – naturally we will keep everyone informed as and when any new information becomes available.
