All-Ireland triumph for Waterford Badminton Club

The Waterford Badminton Association grade E team celebrating its success

Following on from provisional success back in February, the Waterford Badminton Association grade E team competed in the All Ireland recently. 

Members trained constantly since their Munster triumph to ensure they had the best opportunity on the day. 

John Amond along with the management team of Trudy Kennedy and Gary Alcorn worked as hard as the team did to ensure they were ready to represent their county. 

They were victorious on the day, beating Connacht and Leinster on the way to attaining the All-Ireland crown.
