Badminton Club

UL Badminton Club - Fastest racket sport in the world
Profile

Badminton is a fast fun and exciting sport. The UL badminton club is definitely a club you will want to join. We play socially and competitively twice a week in the Arena. If you are a beginner, we will provide you with a racket and shuttles… and there will always be someone to explain the rules of the game. If you are an experienced player, you will find players with a similar standard of play. SOME ACHIEVEMENTS TO DATE: In recent years, the club has had a lot of success in various competitions. Last season (2016/17) the UL Badminton Club competed in several student and public competitions, across a variety of levels. The major student competitions entered were the intervarsities and Enschede. The other notable competitions entered were the Limerick league, the Munster League, and the All Irelands, as well as several one day competitions. This year we had two teams in the Limerick leagues. The grade 5 team was Limerick champion and thus qualified for the Munsters. The grade 5 team suffered a very close defeat in the Munster final, coming down to the last few games. The Limerick county individuals were a success for the UL members with gold in Men's grade 5 doubles and Men's grade 4 singles. The UL badminton club was very well represented at the Munster individuals. We picked up 3 gold medals in the Men's grade 4 and 5 singles as well as the Men's grade 4 doubles in a long day of hard fought badminton. We were the host of he Irish Intervarsities this year. We had two teams competeing in a very competitive tournament. The UL A and B teams fought their way into the finals of both the cup and plate respectively. However, it was not to be UL's day on either count with both teams settling for silver medals on this occasion. Several members took the trip to ISBT Enschede (Netherlands) this year, the competition was very high and all our members performed well in their respective categories. Team competitions take place throughout the college year but members are more than welcome to play socially. ISBT: Club members also take part in ISBT competitions (International Student Badminton Tournament) in various European countries. These competitions are open to all players from beginners to advanced. They are a great opportunity for all to test their skill levels against the best in the country and further afield. The ISBT also encourages 1st-year beginners to experience team competition at a college level in a fun and social environment. The first ISBT of the year takes place in Limerick at the end of October. The club is informed regularly about other European ISBT competitions.
