"Members support has helped Badminton Ireland provide Scott and I with the best chance of getting to the Olympic Games and performing at our best. Badminton needs to be in the Olympic Games to develop the sport and get much needed air time on TV. I would like to thank every member for their support over the past Olympic cycle and look forward to meeting you at the Irish Open or at one of the coaching events throughout the year"
