ABOUT THE
KILKENNY MASTERS

The Kilkenny Masters men’s team (over 40’s) have been competing at these sporting & social events in Galway, Tralee & Dublin since 2014. Whilst enjoying the competitive and social elements of these tournaments, we felt it was time to host our own event.

And so, the inaugural Kilkenny Masters basketball tournament took place in September 2018, starting small with five men’s teams taking part. We dedicated it in the memory of local man Lar Murphy, a very popular and hugely respected player and referee, who had sadly passed away in 2017.

Due to the success of this event, we quickly gained a lot of interest from teams around Ireland. And so we held our second tournament on the first weekend of March 2019, which is now our annual date for the event.

With eight mens and five ladies teams taking part and using two gyms to facilitate the games, this tournament too proved to be a huge success. Teams who travelled from Mayo, Clare, Kerry, Cork, Waterford, Carlow, Dublin, Laois & Kildare also enjoyed a great night out in Paris Texas Bar in the city.

This time round for 2020 we will be increasing the teams taking part. Get your team registered soon so as not to miss out!

While the focus is on the competitive nature of basketball, the ethos of our Masters tournament does include fun and social interaction also.
