“It is great to see our young players competing so well internationally. The Badminton Ireland talent group players and academy players commit to up to five sessions during the week while balancing out their school commitments. It is an invaluable experience for these players to compete against players outside of Ireland. We look forward to following their progress in upcoming events during the 2019-2020 season”
