  • Munster U11 and U15

    04/03/2015 Munster U11 and U15

    267 entries, 2 divisions, 28 separate competitions, 293 games played, the Munster Closed U11 and U15 broke many records as it was played to a conclusion on Sunday 8th March in UL.  With close on 150 players taking part, a decision was taken in advance to make all matches 1 game to 30 in order to finish the competition on time.

    There was high drama and a good deal of tension as each competitor sought to make it through to the next round.  With some matches decided on the smallest of margins, there was plenty of excitement for the parents and spectators watching on.

    Recently selected for the Irish U13 team, Alexandra Troy led the gold medal table at U15.  She took the U15 Division 1 Girls Doubles title with her partner Sarah Pingree by defeating Mairead O’Sullivan and Eadaoin Coughlan; followed that by winning the U15 Girls Singles, defeating Sarah Pingree in a very tight match; and finished the day by taking the U15 Mixed Doubles with her partner Brian O’Mahony when they defeated Hannah Buckley and Cathal O’Donoghue in the final.

    Also recently selected on the Irish U13 team, Daniel O’Meara reached the final of the U15 Division 1 Boys Singles where he was overcome by the older and more experienced Cathal O’Donoghue.

  • Moycarkey Borris Badminton Club

    14/02/2015 Moycarkey Borris Badminton Club

    Badminton Ireland visited newly formed Moycarkey Borris Badminton Club, the club was formed in October last year and they practice on Wednesday evening in the new community hall in Littleton which has 4 courts. The club has 26 memebers with a mixture of juveniles and adults. As part of our new club development programme we are visiting new clubs around the country to help them get started. We offer advice on how to organise the training sessions, how to teach basic techniques using 'Teicnic badminton', how to teach volunteers to coach via our 'Shuttle Time' programme, and what needs to be done to formalise the club.Teicnic badminton consists of seven levels of technical development, similar to karate belts, which can be trained and then assessed. The player gains the t-shirt of the level they have taken, and can then progress on to the next level. The club visit provided an opportunity to introduce the club to the resources and to show them how they can be used. They can then use this programme to develop the players on an ongoing basis..

  • Club Visit: Staker Wallace GAA Club

    19/01/2015 Club Visit: Staker Wallace GAA Club

    Last weekend Badminton Ireland paid a visit to Staker Wallace GAA Club in Kilbreedy, Co. Limerick. An enthusiastic group of up and coming juvenile players took part in some introductory practice sessions at the very well equipped 3 court hall outside Kilmallock. The day kicked off at 12 o’clock with B.I. Coach, Al Bredin giving a session with the assistance of his daughter Megan.

    The session focused on the fundamentals of some of the basic shots and was attended by a broad cross-section of players from 5 different clubs from around the county. An afternoon session accommodated the needs of some of the youngest players whom were introduced to different ways of improving hand-eye coordination by having some fun games.

    "Im delighted to see a large number of adults and coaches attend and actively got involved in the coaching process" Al Bredin
