I have been contacted by a number of clubs regarding the original date of September 11thwhich was the date for clubs to submit the names of their entrants for the finals of the BLI singles and pairs.
The extension of the Kildare lockdown has hampered some clubs in running their competitions to qualify for the finals so I will not being doing the draws based on individuals but on clubs. i.e. North Kildare 1 and North Kildare 2. This will give clubs up until the eve of the competitions (Saturday September 19th) to run their competitions.
I will be doing the draw soon with dates and times of matches so players will know well in advance when they are due to play when they qualify even if that is as late as the day before.
I hope this gives clubs the opportunity to allow all their members participate in the competitions.
Best wishes and Stay Safe
BLI Competition Secretary
