  • School Kids, Teachers and Badminton at the Zeminar National Youth Summit 2016

    14/10/2016 School Kids, Teachers and Badminton at the Zeminar National Youth Summit 2016

    The RDS was jam packed for the first ever Zeminar National Youth Summit. Teenagers from schools across Ireland came to try out new sports, listen to talks and meet new people. The event was held over three days where Badminton Ireland had a stand set up for people to try out badminton and get some information on the sport in Ireland or clubs in their  area.  

    Over 1000 teenagers from the ages of 13-19 visited the stand over the course of the 3-day event. Teacher's at the event visited the stand to see how they could get their school involved with the sport or the Shuttle Time programme. It was a very busy event with teenagers playing on the pop-up nets all day long and information been given out  to them on courses and clubs being run in their local areas.

    A big thank you to John Hughes who volunteered for the three days of the event and was a great help.

  • Kadca BC Smashes Through Teicnic to Achieve Clubmark Status

    04/05/2016 Kadca BC Smashes Through Teicnic to Achieve Clubmark Status

    Kadca Badminton Club completed their final aspect of the Bronze Level of the BI Clubmark Programme. Kadca have been working through the Bronze level since before Christmas and last week organised a 'White Teicnic' session for their members to complete the programme.

    Natalia Fusciardi, New Member Coordinator for Kadca had this to say about the Teicnic programme.

    "14 members of KADCA participated in the White level of the Teicnic program on Tuesday last. We found it to be very beneficial and enjoyable. As a club, we felt it brought a lot of team spirit as everyone was helping each other and making sure the routines were done correctly. It was valuable to every player who took part as we were shown how to hold your racket while doing certain shots and how to do the shots correctly including footwork. It also made a nice change to club play as it was something a little bit different. As everyone enjoyed it, we have no doubt that we will get the same group to progress on the Yellow level. We would definitely recommend that other clubs get involved with this program."
