  • Ennis Summer Camp

    16/09/2016 Ennis Summer Camp

    Ennis Badminton Club held its annual Summer Camp from 23rd to 26th August 2016 at its badminton hall and, once again, there was very good interest in the camp.

    The camp was split into four groups depending on age/ability and each group received two hours' coaching each day.  In total, the camp ran from 9.30am to 6.30pm each day.  Despite the warm weather, all players participated fully in all aspects of the camp and will, no doubt, bring what they learned with them into the new badminton season.

    Our lead coach was Jonathan Dolan who was assisted by Adam McAllister and Tony Crowley.  The players attending the camp benefited greatly from the coaching and encouragement they received during the week and were impressed by the skills displayed by these experienced players.

    Thanks to the parents who provided supervision during the week and thanks to all the players for their attention, good humour and good behaviour throughout the camp.
