Training

We offer two sessions every Saturday from September to April. The first session runs from 3pm to 4:30pm, and is reserved for children under 13 years of age. The second session runs from 4:30pm to 6pm and is reserved to under 18 years old.

Both sessions are run by certified coaches who train the aspiring players – we welcome children of all levels and everything is taught depending on the level of the players: from rules, proper racket handling, serving, foot work to more advanced tactics. If your child is interested in joining the club, please email secretary.dunlaoghairerathdownjunior@badmintonireland.com to enquire about available space.

Every year we field teams for interested players to compete in the Dublin league, based on age ranges.

Parents are welcomed to come and watch the training sessions. The club is run by volunteer parents and we are always looking for more people to join in, so if this is you please let us know!
