RITA Committes

Since its foundation in 1972 the RITA has been the ITF's representative in Ireland. Over the past 40 years there have been numerous changes in both the ITF and RITA structure. The RITA prides itself in maintaining a professional approach to the running of the organisation.

The new system involves a number of Committees who concentrate on a particular aspect of the RITA, these through their Chairman report to the newly formed Masters Council which then decides to act on any proposals. All RITA members are encouraged to get involved by either submitting ideas to the committees or by joining them. Below are the full contact details for all of the Committees.
