The fifth staging of the Donegal Pool County Championships takes place in the Abbey Hotel, Donegal town, on the weekend of April 2nd 3rd.
Players of all abilities and ages are welcome. In fact, Saturday’s team event has traditionally been won by teams who would have been considered rank outsiders at the start of the day.
This year there are a number of titles up for grabs: the prestigious team competition, the men’s singles competition, a ladies’ singles competition and an over-50’s competition.
There will be eight championship tables in the venue with each table rental being sponsored by a local business.
In addition, there are a host of spot prizes available to all players who participate in the team event.
