  • Boyle BC Smash White Teicnic

    25/04/2016 DevelopmentBoyle BC Smash White Teicnic

    Boyle Badminton Club recently organised the White Teicnic assessment and tied it in with a club visit from Badminton Ireland.

    A bit about the club...

    Boyle is situated in north Roscommon at the foot of the Curlew mountains near Lough Key Forest Park. Our club has 27 members affiliated to Badminton Ireland. We have a four-court badminton hall and we meet twice weekly on Mondays & Thursday nights 9-1130pm. 

    'It was the first time the club had done Teicnic, there was a mixture of beginners and players who had played for years. The club saw the value in the programme as a lot of the experienced players said they didn't realise the grip change and other aspects. We had some fun with the programme and in the short time that I was there I could see the difference in shots as players kept practising them." Norma McIntyre Club Development Officer

    "At the moment we have a H team who lost the county final very narrowly this year and we have a G team who won their county final and lost out in the Connacht final by 1 point. We also have members joining up with another local club to make teams to play in Grades E & C. Members of our club have won 2 All-Irelands in the last 3 years.Our C players will be playing in the All-Irelands in Dublin in May. Good luck to all!" Bernie Lavin the Secretary of Boyle Badminton Club

    Boyle members did have one complaint and that was the tired and sore bodies after the footwork relay race at the end! It wasn't enough to put them off the programme and they are keen to progress through the next level, the Yellow Teicnic.
