Northern Ireland’s first Irish Polocrosse Association (IPA) Polocrosse Tournament takes place this weekend in Co Down, when the Tyrella Polocrosse Club plays host to teams from all over Ireland.

The inaugural tournament kicks off at 10am on Saturday 8 May and continues on Sunday May 9.

Polocrosse is beginning to gain momentum in Northern Ireland with guidance and training from the IPA.

There will be a full event schedule on both days over the weekend and competitors of all ages and levels will be participating.

Visitors are welcome to come and watch the matches and tournament organisers will be on hand for those looking for more information.

The Irish Polocrosse squads are also in training for the World Cup of Polocrosse being held at Bishop Burton College in Yorkshire (4-18 July 2011).

The IPA feels Ireland can improve on its sixth place finish in each of the past two World Cups.
