The ILGU High Performance (HP), Horizon Performance, U16 Development and Funded Performance panellists begin a domestic series of events at the Seapoint U21 and Woodbrook Scratch Cups. 

Due to the cancellation of numerous national and international events the ILGU HP Committee, led by HP Director Anne Ferguson and HP Manager David Kearney, organised a domestic series around some pre-existing events to provide competitive opportunities for home based players. 

Olivia McCrystal (Holywood) returns to Seapoint to defend her 2019 title while Lauren Walsh (Castlewarden) will be vying to retain at Woodbrook on Friday.
