Badminton News

Congratulations to Annie Gough on being chosen to represent Mayo in the U-13 Badminton Team Event for the Connacht Championships and imagine our delight when this Mayo U-13 Team won their first ever Connacht Team Event. Last Saturday Annie travelled to Dublin to compete in the All Ireland Badminton u-13 finals and this event was run on a Round Robin basis where all players got to play each other, Dublin East, Kerry South, Donegal North and Mayo West. However, as we were one player unable to play, Mayo lost out. However, we must thank Anthony Walshe, Ballina Badminton Club for co-ordinating this Mayo team and hopefully we will be back again next year to represent our County and province on its quest for an All Ireland Badminton title. Well done to all the team players who gave of their very best we are so proud of you all and there is always next year. Also a special thank you to John Joe Tolan, John Valerio and Aileen for their coaching and tactical advice on team strategy. Your support is much appreciated. Badminton has concluded and we hope to see everyone again in September
