Badminton at St Vincent’s Castleknock College commenced in early 2018 and is headed by Brian Kearney & Co, who also manages our tennis. Badminton offers a whole host of benefits ranging from increasing mobility to promoting heart health and exercise for all ages and abilities. The international standard coaches working with Brian are Mark Topping, David Walsh & Reaz Vawda.
We are entering the schools’ leagues in 2021-22. Shuttlecocks and racquets will be supplied (though it is best to get your own racquet eventually). We play on the four badminton courts in our new Sports Hall. There is an extra cost of €80 which will cover registration fees to Leinster and All-Ireland competitions. Application forms for badminton can be found in reception.
