The purpose of the Badminton Museum of Ireland is to preserve the great heritage of Irish Badminton and to make the general badminton public aware of it.
Welcome to the latest uploads to our website.
The Historical Items displays a very detailed and in parts quite damning report on the 1986 Irish National Championships which appeared in UB (Ulster Branch) News. It is unusual to see such criticism levelled at a major event although it is obvious there was some good play despite the difficulties highlighted.
The Gallery Item displays an invitation team that played Denmark in 1950 in Glasgow. The team includes two Irish Players, Frank Peard and Jim FitzGibbon. Wong Peng Soon and the Choong brothers were multiple All-England winners and the inclusion of the Irish players gives a clear indication of their calibre.
I am pleased to indicate that there are very positive indications that the Museum material will have a permanent display area in Baldoyle Centre in the near future, thanks to the support of Leinster Branch. This will mean that Badminton Museum of Ireland will be able to handle a more significant amount of material and we hope to get a good response from the Badminton community by way of loan or donation of memorabilia. Our aim to preserve the heritage of Irish Badminton is beginning to appear achievable..
