Ladies & Juvenile sub-committee
P.P.U.I. - 12/03/2019 - Details of work of PPUI Ladies & Juvenile sub-committee
In 2018 the PPUI Honorary President appoint a PPUI sub-committee to look at all aspects of the Ladies & Juvenile game. The sub-committee was asked to discuss items in relation to participation rates, barriers to participation, handicaps, competitions, administration and much more. This sub-committee was formally appointed in September 2018 and will be in operation until AGM in 2020.
Over the past few months this sub-committee have been working in the background looking at issues facing Ladies & Juveniles in the sport of Pitch and Putt. At the PPUI’s recent Convention held on March 9th in the Templemore Arms Hotel, Declan Sheedy as chair presented a summary of the sub-committee’s work so far and detailed some of the recommendations made to the NEC. this presentation is available to read at the following link:
The Ladies & Juvenile sub-committee members involved in the submission of the report were:
- Declan Sheedy, Clare Road (Chairperson)
- Lily O’Brien, Lakeside
- Mark Keohane, Rocklodge
- Darren Keogh, Ryston
- Christine Mulvey, Glenville
- Audrey Donnelly, MacBride
- Helen McMorrow, Lakeside (RIP)
Some of the recommendations are well under-way with a Backspin ezine planned for mid-April that will be solely focussed on ladies & Juvenile in P&P. A motion was passed at Convention to allow the NEC make temporary changes to the PPUI Constitution and Rules of Play in order to trial some of the recommendations that may arise out of the sub-committees work. In order for the sub-committee to get feedback from the general public, two email addresses have been set up, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. There has also been a new Facebook page set up which is dedicated to increasing the profile, promotion and development of Ladies and U16 Pitch & Putt in Ireland. This can be found at the following link:
The work of the sub-committee will continue over the coming weeks and months. The sub-committee is very eager to hear from PPUI members and welcomes any feedback. Comments can be directed to the PPUI – Ladies and Juvenile Facebook page or to the e-mail addresses listed above.
