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, Darragh Higgins and Louis Lyons. The school has been one of the best in Leinster at badminton in recent years winning Dublin and Leinster school finals at Senior Level and our Minor and Junior teams also winning titles.
We are entering the schools’ leagues in 2023-24. 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 €100 which will cover registration fees to Leinster and All-Ireland competitions. Application forms for badminton can be found in reception or downloaded from the bottom of this page.
