    27/11/2014 Welcome to Lecanvey

    Lecanvey Badminton Club are newly established this year and play in Lecanvey Community Centre which sits in the shadow of Croagh Partick Mountain in County Mayo. The centre has one court which backs on to the local church, and has recently been granted funding for development via government sports capital funding. Badminton Ireland went along to meet the club as part of their club development programme. The club were very welcoming, true to the phrase on the wall, and had tea and sandwiches prepared. The evening was spent discussing the various ways the club can develop including trying to turn their local youth club into a juvenile badminton club, or even a juvenile feeder group for getting new players into the adult club. The members of the club were really keen to ask questions about technique and tactics, so we did some exercises to develop their technique, and introduced them to the Teicnic badminton programme. We also had some matches and talked over some tactical strategies which they can try out against their future opponents.

  • Local GAA hall - 'A perfect venue'

    27/11/2014 Local GAA hall - 'A perfect venue'

    Bulgaden-Martinstown parish in County Limerick is home to a healthy and growing badminton community. Badminton Ireland visited them at their new home, at Staker Wallace GAA Club, a three court hall built by Irish racehorse owner and businessman JP McManus just three years ago. 

    The club used to operate out of a one court hall so they now have space for many more enthusiastic adult players. On the success and interest created by the adults and the recent Shuttle Time course that was completed by some local teachers they have started a juvenile club in the same facility. The juvenile club has gained rapid momentum and has tripled in size from 15 to around forty members. Badminton Ireland will be returning to Bulgaden in the future to help with advice on the running of  the club and to help implement the Teicnic badminton program to the juveniles.
