Visit to Badminton Ireland Academy Cell Oranmore


Visit to Badminton Ireland Academy Cell Oranmore

Badminton Ireland Coach Craig McCourtney paid a visit to one of the Academy Cell's in Oranmore, Galway last week and there is some great progress being made in the group. The Academy Cell runs twice a week in Oranmore Community Centre with lead Coaches Shane Wynne and Anthony Conneely putting the players through their paces.

"The players are showing great improvement in our BI Academy Cell set up, with many of them attending the Irish National Squads for the second year running and some making the callbacks" - Shane Wynne.

Craig McCourtney led the session for the Academy Cell players during the visit, which they found challenging and enjoyable. They did a number of footwork exercises and some work on attacking play in a 2 v 1 format.

"I'm really impressed with the work Shane and Anthony are putting in with the players and it shows after seeing them in action during my visit" - Craig McCourtney.
