March 17 - 19, 2023
ON-LINE REGISTRATION OPEN NOW!
The tournament committee would like to thank you for joining us in our final annual St Patrick’s Invitational Tournament (SPIT)! It is with much thought, reflection and sadness that the Memphis tournament committee made the difficult decision to cease our annual tournament. COVID significantly impacted our league which has now shrunk to about half its size. Our tournament has also seen a decrease from the days it used to have 120 bowlers to less than 80 the last time we held the tournament. Rather than focus on both our IGBO league and the tournament, we felt the best focus would be to continue our efforts to build back our IGBO league.
As we reflect, we are proud of the contributions that the Memphis IGBO tournament has made to the community both in support of the IGBO ideals of Unity, Fellowship, Communication and in philanthropic efforts. While we were never a big money payout, we have averaged a payout that generally more than doubled the prize fund amount obtained from entries. Over the last 15 years the tournament has donated over $40,000 to local charities.
As we gather one last time, March 17-19, 2023, we hope to see and renew the friendships established with prior participants while also welcoming new participants who want to help us celebrate our Final Annual St Patrick’s Invitational Tournament.
