Badminton was established within the school in 2013. Since then, we have taken part in numerous competitions, proving to be extremely successful by reaching Leinster finals on multiple occasions.
Badminton requires a combination of both physical and mental ability as it improves your fitness and decision making under pressure. There are three different age groups; under 14's, under 16's and under 19's. The sport has become increasingly popular and currently has over 50 students participating. It's a great opportunity for students to mix with other students who they wouldn't ordinarily socialise with. Training takes place once a week for an hour in the Watershed.
Badminton is an extremely enjoyable, entertaining, lively and pleasant game to play. Our coaches are exceptionally helpful and encouraging and make badminton all the more enjoyable. Friendships which have been made in badminton are now friendships for life. Experience is not essential to join the team, but what is essential is the ability to have fun.
