    The 3rd Louth Open will get under way on Friday 17th October with Mark Brady taking the No1 seed position in the men’s singles. It looks like being a closely fought contest with Tony Murphy (2), Norman Lau (3/4) and Nigel Boyne (3/4) all seeking honours! Keep an eye out for young Nhat Nguyen, who will be seeking to unseat some of the established players!

    Women’s singles will start the play on Saturday morning with Norma McIntyre as No 1 and Lucie Corcoran as No 2 seeds. In the men’s doubles, Daniel Magee will partner Tony Murphy to take the top seeding with John Amond/Kevin Fahy teaming up for the No 2 position. The No 3/4 seeds are Mark Brady/Norman Lau and William Gourley/Jonathon Ruddy. In the women’s doubles Gemma Tobin/Ciara O’Connor are the top seeds with the new partnership of Lynn Boylan/Laura Hennessy aiming to unseat them.

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.
