    Paul Reynolds “A home grown Talent”

    Paul will talk about his journey so far growing up training in the Irish system. Paul has moved up through the Badminton Ireland academy into the high-performance system and has trained under many different coaches on his way there. Paul will give an insight into his day to day life as he balances out training and studies while competing on the European circuit. Paul has also had a number of high profile wins including winning a quadrangular gold in men’s doubles, European U17 bronze in men’s doubles and gold in the 2017 Polish open men’s doubles. This will be an interesting talk for both coaches working with Juvenile players and for players to get an insight into both training and the Irish system.
