At GLTC Badminton, we strive to maintain a standard of badminton that compares to the highest levels of play in Ireland. We currently have players from Grades C to H, with members participating in local, county, provincial and national competitions from each of these six levels. Our current Grade E Team are the All-Ireland Winners this year too!
For those who would like to enjoy some more friendly badminton and perhaps don’t feel like taking it too seriously, we also run a number of fun and socially-focused competitions throughout the year for everyone, beginners included! These would include the Summer Blitz, Halloween Tournament and the Turkey Tournament, among others!
For more details on any of our events, please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ADULT SOCIAL BADMINTON
We have seven Championship badminton courts in GLTC, two in the ‘small hall’ and five in the ‘big hall’. Badminton Club Night consists of friendly doubles, providing each player with a variety of games. It is intended to be fun and gives you an opportunity to meet and socialise with other members. Players of any standard may take part, although a very inexperienced player may prefer some coaching and practice first. Club Night is organised by a member of the badminton committee who place players onto courts to play doubles, ensuring they have good, balanced games. Players are mixed into different groups every 15 – 20 minutes.
Every Monday evening from 8pm to 10pm, Club Night takes place in the ‘Big Hall’. This is a chance for non-members and members alike to try their hand at badminton and to meet new players in the Club. On the last Monday of each month, after the club night has finished, everyone moves up to the bar for some refreshments and a chat! If you haven’t tried it out already, come along and you will not be disappointed!
