The first RIBSA / IBSF Under 18 and 21 Snooker Ranking events of the season will be held in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club, Carlow on Saturday the 8th and Sunday the 9th of February.
These events are for young talented players looking to qualify for the World IBSF Under 21 Snooker Championships and Home Internationals later in the year.
RIBSA will hold three International IBSF Ranking tournaments plus a National Championship. These events are open to all the underage players and if any player loses their first match on the day they can play in a plate event on the same day.
All juniors have an extra chance to qualify for the IBSF events through the Senior Rankings as RIBSA will give the highest ranked junior on the senior ranking a qualifying spot at the closing date. This is to encourage more juniors to compete in the senior events.
