A big thank you to Ita, Jean, Jim, David,Amanda and Niall from the Leinster YACS and also to the referee, Aengus, for their efforts and commitment to get through the matches. Thank you also to the Baldoyle Centre for accommodating us with the extra hours court time needed and to the catering and bar staff for keeping the food and drink in full supply.

     The BS U17 gold went to No1 seed Nhat Nguyen and Kyle Magee silver. GS U17 gold went to Moya Ryan and silver to Clodagh Dunne. No1 seed Kate Frost pulled out of the singles with a slight injury which wasn’t worth continuing with in case of further damage. The U17 BD Gold went to No1 seeds are Brian O’Mahony and Adam McAllister, after Ben Gallagher Lynch couldn’t travel due to illness. Silver went to Jon McCreedy and Mathew Smyth. The U17 GD No1 seeds Clodagh Dunne and Kerri Scott could only take Silver this time with Gold going to Kate Frost and Moya Ryan. The U17 MXD Gold went to No2 seeds Kyle Magee & Clodagh Dunne and Silver to Brian O’Mahony & Beth Stephenson, an all U15 aged final. Good prospects for the future in Irish mixed.

    The BS U13 Gold went to the in form No1 seed Peter McDonald. Silver went to Daniel O’Meara. The GS U13 Gold went to Orla Flynn No3 and Silver to Kerry Fallon No1 with all seeds reaching the semi finals as expected. The BD U13 Gold went to Jack Armstrong & Peter McDonald No1 and Silver to Daniel O’Meara & Michael Staunton No2. The GD U13 Gold went to Kerry Fallon & Megan McLoughlin No2,and Silver to Neasa Flynn & Orla Flynn No3.

It was great to see the umpires in attendance at the semi-finals and finals and well done to all the coaches and parents for their endless hours of work with the players which resulted in a great display of juvenile badminton. Best of luck to the U13 &U17 players in their National championships in the coming weeks.

Leinster Badminton

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

In addition to liaising with the county associations (Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow) to assist in the development of the game, the branch schedules many events in the sporting calendar throughout the year, including graded opens, the Dublin and District league as well as the Leinster Mens Singles, Ladies Doubles & Mixed Doubles Ladders.

Leinster Branch operate and manage two Badminton facilities in Dublin, in essence the hubs for Badminton activity in the Province; Terenure Badminton Centre in Whitehall Road (Dublin 12) & Baldoyle Badminton Centre on the Grange Road in Baldoyle (Dublin 13). Many clubs are based out of the Whitehall Road and Baldoyle badminton centres, with a vast array of juvenile clubs contributing to a strong juvenile section in the province. 

Leinster branch, in conjunction with Badminton Ireland aims to further develop the sport in the region, with the last couple of years seeing the development of the Hi Performance Centre in the Marino Institute of Education, the hosting of the Annual Coaching Conference in Dublin and the development of the Badminton Ireland Academy.
