The Republic of Ireland Ladies Snooker Association held a fundraising day at Sharkx Newbridge recently with a 12 hour marathon to help raise funds towards our representatives Annette Newman, Margaret Browne and Sandra Bryan who will be playing in the Ladies World Championships in a few weeks time. Dan Carroll, World Coach was on hand to give free coaching all through the 12 hour marathon.
The day was a great success and all the ladies were delighted with the coaching provided along with having the opportunity to practice and enjoy their snooker. A big thank you to Bernie and Paul from Sharkx for providing the tables throughout the 12 hours and also refreshments, its very much appreciated by everyone at RILSA. Thanks also to everyone who donated and helped throughout the day.
Sharkx Snooker Club is now one of RILSA’s Academies and has 12 members who play and practice there on a regular basis and we hope to build on this during the year.
