County, Munster & All-Ireland competitions are run in the following age-groups & divisions:
Competition format: 4 singles & 2 doubles
The Waterford county competition is usually held in November in Blackwater Community School. All school teams are entered into this competition. Teams that win Division 1 in the county competition qualify for the Munster competitions held in the University of Limerick in January. Teams may then qualify for the All-Ireland finals held in Gormanstown in March.
Training takes place in the school PE hall one evening per week (Tuesday) from 3:50pm -4:50pm.
Training is open to all boys and girls, from beginners to club players.
Players are encouraged to play with their local clubs.
Division 1 & 2 players need to be a member of a club to play at this standard.
The school supplies rackets and shuttles to students. Students may bring their own rackets, which can be stored safely in Room 20 during the school day.
All students are welcome to get involved. Please contact Ms Wilkinson if you are interested in playing badminton in BCS.
