Hi all from Ireland
Hi all, Michael here.
Had an old account here but that has long since disappeared. Anyways I decided I would make a new account. This is without a doubt the best place for info and general chat on badminton. Hopefully I can add something constructive.
I play in Waterford, Ireland. Check out our website.
I am playing 11 years and hopefully will be playing for years to come.
Fav Rackets: Yonex NS9000x, Karakal SL70
Fav String: BG80
Fav Shoes: Yonex SHB 91M

We have two courts. The building is almost 300 years old. It was a church which was damaged in a gas explosion about 40 years ago. The church didn't want to repair it so the club brought it and turned in into a badminton club.
The two courts are great, wooden sprung floors. The No.1 court (first two pics) is great for finals with the crowd so close makes for a fantastic atmosphere.
Was injured for a while and lost a bit of interest after a doctor told me I wouldn't play again (proved him wrong ). So back now with a renewed interest so hopefully will be a far more frequent visitor to these forums.

300 year old badminton hall! That has to be a record. It looks great.
The wooden pews give a nice austere atmosphere for a small tourney .... or a nice Inquisition (One can picture Torquemada umpiring quite comfortably up on the high chair)

Thanks for the welcome
Always liked the atmosphere there for matches, hate the modern sports halls. Last tournament I was at had 16 courts and you feel lost playing in the big space.
Thanks for the welcome
