Yesterday (25th February) saw the annual Defence Forces (DF) v An Garda Síochana 40×20 Challenge match take place in Salthill HC, Galway. This was the 5th edition of the annual meeting of the forces and is always the most looked forward to event of the year for both clubs. The event is doubles & singles, with total aces scored determining the winner on the day. Both teams declare their strongest players to face off in a singles game and the other doubles games are drawn at random.
