Dear member,

A number of enquiries have been made in relation to inter-club sparring. As was agreed at the recent Central Council meeting, inter-club sparring is currently not allowed.  This will remain the case for the coming weeks and the situation will be monitored.

The Covid case numbers are starting to rise again and some more deaths have occurred as a result. Our long-term goal is to get back to competition and National Championships but in order to do so, we must take some short-term pain by not hosting inter-club sparring and play our part in trying to mitigate the potential spread of this virus.

In turn, this means that sparring can only take place between members of the same club.  As soon as any changes to this situation are made, members will be notified.

Kind regards,

Paddy Gallagher

National Secretary
