Primary and Secondary Schools

Cork Sports Partnership and Badminton Ireland are teaming up to roll out a new Schools Badminton Programme in 2020. The programme aims to overcome the initial barriers of introducing badminton into a school environment by; educating teachers to coach Badminton, providing teachers with equipment and session plans to deliver the game, offering social blitz competitions for the students while also developing club-school links.
