CEO February Statement

January, February and March are very busy months for Badminton Ireland's events staff. The competition has been fierce in recent Nationals championships for Masters, U15's and Seniors. It is fantastic to see first time winners in all events and I thought the competitiveness and standard of play of the U15 players in particular, was especially encouraging for the future.
Badminton still relies on it's dedicated but small number of volunteers who help run the game in Ireland. These volunteers give up their free time to serve on committees, coach our players or ensure the smooth and professional running of tournaments. We must always remember that these volunteers deserve our respect and thanks. As a wise man once told me, "If you want to complain, have you volunteered yet?"

Yours in badminton,

Michael Watt
