Badminton Ireland National Coach

Badminton Ireland regrets to announce that National Coach John Quinn has resigned. Quinn is stepping down from his role as HP coach to return to England and spend more time with his family.

Joining Badminton Ireland after the RIO Olympics in 2016, John Quinn has had a significant contribution to Irish Badminton. He has overseen the significant achievements in recent years such as the historic European Senior Medal won by Sam and Chloe Magee in Kolding, Denmark in 2017 and Nhat Nguyen’s European Junior Medal success earlier this year.

“We are sad to see John depart from Irish Badminton, but we all understand and respect his motives for doing so. On behalf of Badminton Ireland, I would like to thank John for his time and dedication to Irish Badminton and wish him well for the future” Said David McGill (CEO)

High Performance and Training Director Dan Magee remarked "It was a pleasure working with John during his time in Ireland. John has a strong work ethic, and he brought some great knowledge to our training group. We have had some very strong results under John as head coach including two European medals. I wish John all the best going forward, and I have no doubt we will cross paths many more times on the badminton circuit."

Badminton Ireland has begun advertising for the role of National Coach (Which can be seen HERE) and hope to appoint a suitable candidate in the new year.
