KCELL returns for its Summer Sessions ahead of new season.

After a very successful first year, Badminton Irelands Kildare based academy cell, KCELL returns with its 6-week summer sessions pay as you go term on Sunday 17th July from 10am and every Wednesday and Sunday thereafter up until the beginning of September.

The object of the Summer Sessions is to offer an opportunity to any players within an hour catchment area to come, enjoy and get a feel for the KCELL academy structure as well as keeping the skills of all existing players sharp over the summer months.

“Our summer session term last year proved to be a major hit” says cell director Mark Phelan “The kids got an opportunity to come and get a taste of the cell structure while getting coached by some of our elite coaches. I would love to see all players coming back again this summer and of course we are always looking out for new players to come and try out KCELL and see for themselves how we are structured and in doing so maybe learn something new and arm themselves with new skills and who knows maybe come join us for the new year starting in September.”

KCELL catered for over 60 children last year and once again will be driven to provide elite level coaching with a focus on low player to coach ratios in our streamlined two hour sessions.

The summer sessions will cost just €10.00 (multiple child discounts available) per child per two-hour session with two sessions planned for each Sunday and Wednesday up until the beginning of September. The sessions are open to any badminton player between the ages of 8 and 18 and will be grouped accordingly with level and experience also taken into account.

What do you need to do to get involved this summer? Just email Mark at to register your child’s interest and if new to KCELL please give your child’s name, age and current club.
