Connacht Badminton

The Connacht Branch of Badminton Ireland exists to promote and develop badminton throughout the province.

In addition to liaising with the county associations (Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim, Galway and Roscommon) to assist in the development of the game, the branch schedules the Connacht Closed tournaments and organises league finals at the end of each season, in which the winners of each county association’s leagues take part.

There is also an emerging re-focus on the development of juvenile badminton which has seen numbers of under-age players wane in recent years. The branch, in conjunction with Badminton Ireland, is attempting to transform badminton in the West to regain the strength and popularity that the sport had in the past. With a focus on badminton at grassroots level, In the coming months Shuttletime Teachers Training Courses will be scheduled in the province to equip teachers with the necessary information and resources to deliver fun badminton lessons in a structured manner. Once students have become familiarised with Badminton, their development will be facilitated by a link up strategy invoving local Badminton Ireland cells, Teicnic & Summer Camps. One facet of this development in particular, the Teicnic skills development programme, has seen immense traction with players in Connacht and over the past year Connacht has been host to numerous White & Yellow level Teicnic courses.
