Kingscourt Shoot-Out entry launched

NOTE: SHOOT-OUT 2 is now fully subscribed as of 18:31, December 4th. Cancellations are likely to please email to go on the standby list - or, if you're up to the challenge, enter Shoot-Out 1!

The popular Kingscourt Shoot-Out is back – and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

The fourth instalment of the singles event takes place on January 7th and January 8th next, with two separate competitions.

Due to demand for this unique event, it has been decided to run two separate days – one roughly for Junior A and Intermediate players (2023 Shoot-Out 1) and one roughly for Junior B players (2023 Shoot-Out 2).

Minor players and seniors who are not in the top 10 in the national rankings are also welcome to enter.

The entry grading guidelines are not rigid; stronger Junior A/Masters players may wish to enter the Intermediate event while others in those grades may prefer to enter the Junior event. The organising committee has the final say on entries.

The innovative format is as follows:

All players must be in attendance for the draw at 9.30am. The top 16 are seeded by the tournament committee and, starting with the 16th seed, each seeded players draws their opponent out of the hat blindly.

Matches serve off at 10am sharp and run all day. Games are played on a 20-minute timed format; a coin is placed in the meter and when the lights go out, it’s game over!

The finalists will have to play five 20-minute matches. First round losers enter the B grade so all players are guaranteed at least two games and the majority will get three or more.

Previous winners of the Shoot-Out, which ran for three years prior to the pandemic, were Wexford men Daniel Kavanagh and Galen Riordan and Kilkenny's Billy Drennan.

Entry costs €30 and is non-refundable. All entrants will receive a complimentary pair of Kill Shot gloves (value, €20) and there will be prizes for winners in all grades.

Players are advised to enter early as in previous years, entry filled up quickly.
