The venues for the European Club Championships have been decided - and it's good news for Ulster clubs.

Banbridge coach Mark Tumilty is happy to be going to Glasgow while Pegasus head to Bilthoven (Netherlands) and Ulster Elks to Prague (Czech Republic).

Bann join Kelburne, Minsk (Belarus), Rotweiss Wettingen (Switzerland), Slavia Praha (Czech Rep), Atasport (Azerbaijan), Bra (Italy) and Cardiff.

Pegasus face Surbiton, Canterbury, Dutch clubs Hertogenbosch and SCHC, Spain's Club de Campo, Germany's Hamburg and Russia's Jrylaskoye.

The Elks are up against Slavia Praha, Donachanka (Russia), Cagliari (Italy), Arminen (Austria), Gintra Strekte (Lithuania), Swansea and Edinburgh University.

Meanwhile, Ireland men have been handed a boost in their efforts to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals.

Dublin is to host one of the three World League 2 tournaments in 2017 which act as World Cup qualifiers.

The women will go to either Valencia, Vancouver or Kuala Lumpur.
