  • Code of Ethics Calendar (Safeguarding Courses) Now Available on the Badminton Ireland Website.

    10/02/2016 MembershipCode of Ethics Calendar (Safeguarding Courses) Now Available on the Badminton Ireland Website.

    As you are aware Badminton Ireland has its own policies and procedures in place to ensure the safety and well-being of all children playing Badminton.  All of which can be viewed here. 

    All volunteers, coaches and parents helping out are encouraged to attend the Basic Awareness Workshops.  These courses are fully accredited by Sport Ireland and Sport N.I.  They are typically 3 hours long.  In the Republic of Ireland these courses are run by LSP’s and in Northern Ireland they are run by Sport N.I.

    We have added a new section to our website under Coaching called “Code of Ethics” where general information can be found on these courses as well as a calendar of all upcoming courses by province in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.  We hope this will make it easier for our members to find and attend the relevant course.

  • High Performance Manager announcement

    09/02/2016 High PerformanceHigh Performance Manager announcement

    Badminton Ireland would like to announce that our High Performance Manager, Stewart Carson, is leaving the organisation.  During his time at BI, Stewart has been involved with the High Performance structure, National teams at all levels and has contributed to our Olympic qualifying effort for Rio 2016. 

    Tom Reidy (BI High Performance Director) commented:

    “Stewart has provided seniority and organisation to Badminton Ireland’s Olympic challenge for his spell as Performance Manager.  However, he has decided that he would like to pursue his career abroad and we wish him well.  He leaves Scott Evans and Chloe Magee in pole position for qualification for Rio and the high performance programme in good shape.  The interim management of High Performance will be dealt with by Dan Magee, Irwan Syah (National Head Coach) and myself.”

    In the mixed doubles, Sam and Chloe Magee overcame another pair of siblings in Ciaran and Sinead Chambers, to secure the title with a 21-19, 21-11 win. The Magees had booked their place in the final with a 21-15, 21-14 victory over Daniel Magee and Fiona Glennon. 

    Sam secured his second title of the day in the Men’s Doubles where he partnered up with younger brother Joshua  Magee.Nhat Nguyen was also involved in the final where he and partner Paul Reynolds lost out 21-12, 21-11 to the Magees.
