The Men’s and Ladies Open events are set to provide incredible high octane action in what are outstanding competitive fields.

3 times National Champion, Conor McElduff will be favourite in a superb high-quality Men’s Open field where 3 times National champion and 2017 finalist, Armagh’s Charly Shanks goes for his first Showdown title. Then there is 2016 Irish Nationals Men’s Open Champion, Galway’s Martin Mulkerrins, not to mention 2016 GAA Handball All Ireland Men’s Open Wallball Champion, Limerick’s Paudi O Coise, who was also a semi finalist at this year’s nationals. The quality continues right down the field and also includes Tyrone’s Seán Kerr and Galway’s Jamie Kelly, who battled it out in a thrilling Men’s 19&U Final tie- break match at the Nationals two weeks ago.

The Ladies Open event will see this year’s Ladies Open champion, Limerick’s Martina McMahon, travel to her first Showdown event while Down’s Lorraine Havern, who has won 3 National titles and lost the recent Open decider, returns to action having been married just last week! Last year saw our youngest ever Open Champion, Armagh’s Megan McCann, and the Irish 17&U champion returns to defend her crown along with the Antrim sisters who possess 5 World Open Championship titles between them, Fiona Shannon and Sibeal Gallagher.

Check out our lists below and previews and profiles to follow as to what can be expected on a very exciting weekend in Loughmacrory from 28th-30th July!

Here are our unique designer Glass Trophies (getting ready for engraving), to be presented to the Winner and Runner-Up in Every Grade at the 2017 Lough Wallball Showdown Tournament… also pictured is the unique Dri-Fit Tournament Tee Shirt to be presented to every player who has entered our 2017 Showdown!

Also please note that the Boys U10 Grade will now be played as a Singles event instead of doubles.
