Trip to Dublin on 27th/28th March

Our U13, U15 & U17 teams had a very enjoyable and successful visit to Artane/Beaumont Badminton club. On arrival, we were treated to delicious home-baking at the Club’s Badminton Centre.

There was a Singles Competition in all age groups on the Saturday evening. These were very exciting and hard-found competitions and a truly sporting occasion. All sections were played to the final stage, which would be finished out on the Sunday. After the badminton finished on Saturday, everyone got down to the serious business of socializing. The players were taken to their respective host families and later brought bowling, where they all met up and enjoyed themselves. The adults were entertained in style in a lovely restaurant in Howth.

On Sunday afternoon, a team event was played. This was just as exciting and sporting , with some matches very close. Our U13 team were winners and well done to Christopher Keane and Cathy Casserly who were winners in the Singles Events. Well done to all who travelled and behaved so well both on and off the court. They were a credit to their families and their Club, and it was a pleasure for the adults to have shared such an enjoyable weekend with them.
