Thanks to all the clubs who entered the Interclub 2020. Images are whizzing off to the Judges and we will revert as soon as the numbers are finalised. Special thanks to the SACC team Ger, Henry and Tadhg and also Rory for number crunching stay tuned for coming news in about a week.


SACC Inter-Club Cup & Shield 2020 – Revised Format.
This event scheduled for Horse & Jockey Hotel on25th April 2020 has been CANCELLED and now

 becomes an On-Line Event as set out below.

The latest date for the receipt of entry forms and the latest date for uploading images remains
unchanged i.e. Friday 17th April 2020, and Sunday 19th April 2020 respectively.

The Judging of entries will now be done remotely on-line.

The event and the results will be videoed and the video made available to competing clubs not later
than 16th May. We are unsure of making the April 25th deadline in the current circumstances.

All the other details of the competition remain as they are.
Individual results will be e-mailed to each Club and Global results will also be published on the SACC
Website while links to the Competition Video will be sent to each participating Club.

The SACC AGM has been deferred to a later date to be advised in due course.

It is hoped that all Clubs will appreciate that we have no choice but to amend the format of the
competition in the present circumstances. The SACC Committee feels however that it is better that the
event proceeds in the revised format rather than postpone the event to the autumn or beyond.

All Clubs can participate in the competition in its revised format without breaching any of the current
Government restrictions which we all understand and appreciate.

We look forward to a bumper entry in both the CUP and the SHIELD and would encourage every Club to
