A Message from the Board of Badminton Ireland

As a community, we’ve never before experienced a demonstration of how interconnected and inter-dependent we are, nor of how we’re capable of working together for the common good in the face of devasting personal tragedies and loss.  The Board of Badminton Ireland would like to express our condolences to those who have lost family and friends directly or indirectly as a result of COVID-19. 

We also want to say THANK YOU to all essential workers who are risking their own health and lives to ensure that the rest of us are as well and as safe as we can be.

To our members who are volunteering to help those less fortunate or more vulnerable in times like this, THANK YOU.

To anyone considering volunteering we would encourage you to do so – these are the links to the supports being coordinated by the government:

Republic of Ireland:

 - The Community Call

 - The Community Call: Advice & Contact Information

 - Volunteer Ireland: Volunteer during COVID 19

Northern Ireland:

 - NIdirect: Help fight back against COVID 19

 - Volunteer Now: Help Eachother

 - HSC: Workforce Appeal

We would ask everyone to please follow government guidelines to maximise the hard-earned benefits and gains from the onerous work being undertaken by our essential workers and volunteers, and we hope to see you safe and well on court in the not too distant future.

The Board and CEO of Badminton Ireland

Catherine Smyth, Betty Thompson, David McGill, John Feeney, Michael O’Meara, Ken Nixon, Ronan Rooney, Aengus Sheeran, Tom Ward, Michael Watt
