Appeal for volunteers!

The Munster Committee needs help to prepare and run a Munster Open competition this coming January in Cork City.

The Committee is a small group of volunteer individuals from Munster clubs committed to promoting table tennis participation and skills in Munster. Whilst the bigger clubs in Munster i.e. Ballincollig, Leeside, Southcoast and Beechhill intend to run a ranking event each during the season the scale of an Open event means that we need your help.

We are calling on volunteers to help with any of the various  aspects of running an Open e.g. marketing/promotion, sponsorship, entries, logistics (equipment ,transportation, set up/take down), signage, competition administration on the day, first aiders, on site parking direction, photography, media. 

Please don’t leave all the work to six individuals! If you or your family member have regularly entered competitions and have taken part in Munster events then we would hope for some help from you.

Without your help there is a danger that perhaps a Munster Open will not take place, as happened in 2019, and we really want to avoid a re-occurrence of this in 2020.

Please contact me if you would like to help us out.

The league will be mixed in ability, gender and clubs. Players who enter will be put into different pools of ability. The draw will be done ‘live’ on the day. Each team will have four players from the different pools so that the matches will be very competitive! There will be reverse singles and a doubles per match. 

No coaching is allowed except by players who are on your team. Emphasis is on building a stronger Munster identify as well as different clubs engaging positively with each other. We will be encouraging the better players on the teams to support the weaker players. 

Fee is 10 euro per player – entry on the day.
