    Bruree badminton club in county Limerick has recently launched a new juvenile section which is a great addition to its existing adult club. They have had a fantastic amount of interest from local families in the first few weeks of running the club. Badminton Ireland went along to help them get started, do some coaching, and offer support. Photo left: Teicnic white - 'backhand keep ups' with club volunteers taking on a coaching role.

  • 17/11/2014 Munster"Keeping up-to-date"

    Educating coaches is a key part of Badminton Ireland's strategy in pushing the game forward in Ireland. It is essential therefore that we upskill our coach educators with the very latest qualifications and experiences. Al Bredin and Ben Caldwell were amongst a group of 21 representative from 13 countries all over Europe at the very first Badminton World Federation (BWF) level 2 tutor training course hosted in Podcetrtec, Slovenia. Badminton Europe along with the Slovenian badminton federation were fantastic hosts on all fronts, particularly in picking the location in a remote spa resort called Terme Olimia in the beautiful countryside of eastern Slovenia. 

  • Carlton Irish Para Championships 2014

    16/11/2014 EventsCarlton Irish Para Championships 2014

    Niall McVeigh Ireland’s World Para Badminton Champion was in the unusual position of coming in to a 4 Nations Para Badminton Championships seeking a win over England’s Andrew Martin to banish the memory of a European campaign which ended in a victory for the English No 1.  Niall was to turn in a series of performances which will rank with those who saw it as simply ‘memorable’.

    With Niall’s old adversary Krysten Coombs(Eng) defeating Andrew Martin(Eng) early on, the stage was set for an interesting semi-final where McVeigh had come back from dropping the first game 22-20 to book his place in the final by taking the next two games 21-14 21-15 while Coombs was a 21-16 21-13 victor over Jack Shephard.

    Mullinavat is a small town of 1.5 thousand people in county Kilkenny. Despite its small population it has a thriving juvenile club. The club has three groups/levels of players with over 50 in total who play in their local community centre. The hall has three courts and is well equiped with a sprung wooden floor, appropriate lighting, and plenty of space around the courts. As part of the Badminton Ireland club visit development programme we paid them a visit.

2014 Carlton Irish Open

Irish No 1, Scott Evans will return to Dublin this December in an attempt to reclaim his men's singles title at the Carlton Irish Badminton Open.   Evans has chalked up some of the best performances of his career during recent months and hopes his winning form will continue when he competes at the Irish Open between Wednesday, 3rd December and Saturday, 6th December 2014.

In 2012, Evans became the first Irish winner of the men's title in over 25 years when he beat French qualifier Lucas Corvee in a thrilling final. His bid to retain the title in 2013 came to an end when he lost in the quarter-finals to Lukas Schmidt of Germany.   However, Evans’s recent win at the Brazilian Grand Prix and second place at the $120,000 Bitburger Open sees him at the top of his game and poised to reclaim the title.
