Our great friend and colleague Mr. Anthony Maguire passed away yesterday. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Gwen and their family at this time.
On Saturday the 13th of June 2020, Master Douglas, Vice President of the INTA, was presented with his Grand Master Certificate by Grand Master O’Toole, President of the INTA, on behalf of Grand Master Weiler, President of the ITF.
The Grand Master rank recognises a lifetime of dedication to the art, to the association and to its members.
We are delighted to see this recognition of his constant courtesy, integrity, self-control, perseverance and indomitable spirit.
In light of current restrictions, the INTA have decided to cancel the next umpires course scheduled for September and the 2020 INTA National Championships which was scheduled to be held in October. The INTA will be guided by HSE guidelines for all future events and will keep members informed.
We congratulate all competitors; you put on a great display! Many thanks to all the umpires, coaches, and parents, who all gave up their free time to make this tournament possible. A big shout out to INTA's new Tournament Director, Master Martin VIII, and his assistant Mr Matthews V Degree; they made a tremendous effort in organizing this tournament, and it all ran smooth as clockwork.
