Amateur 1 Day Series

The IPA is delighted to announce the details of its brand new, innovative Amateur 1 Day Series, where someone could win a whopping £7,800!

Several clubs across the UK will stage 4 One Day events each, with the top 12 from each venue at the end of the series, qualifying for the Grand Final where the winner will take home a cool £5,000.

The series starts in January, and will run until May, with the Grand Final taking place in June at a venue to be confirmed, so check out the dates for your nearest club.

You can enter as many or as few of the events as you wish, but places are capped at 32 entries per day event – and it is open to all Amateur players.

So with no excess travelling or additional hotel costs, it is yet another great value event from the IPA.

You can enter directly at the venue or online via the IPA shop at https://ipapool.com/product-category/2024-amateur-1-day-series/

And as an added incentive, the winner of each Grand Final will automatically qualify for Professional status for 2025

It’s not too late for any club who wants to be a part of Season 1 – just drop us a message at secretary@ipapool.com or via our Facebook/Twitter pages.

We will be running a second edition of the Amateur series from July to December – watch out for details – this is going to get BIG!
