The Irish Master's team finished an impressive 7th at the 2018 Forza Nations Cup held in France. The Forza Nations Cup is a doubles only competition where each team will play one WD, one MD and two XD in each age group: +40, +45, +50, +55, +60.
In the group stages Ireland was in a tough group with France & Denmark but had some great matches and narrowly missed coming 2nd losing out to France by 1 point.
This put them in the playoff positions for 7th, 8th & 9th and after 2 great wins against Austria & Switzerland Ireland finished in 7th position.
A major highlight for the Irish team was the over 60's Women's doubles remaining undefeated throughout the tournament.
