In exactly a month, Badminton Ireland will be organizing its third consecutive BWF Para-Badminton International tournament. This year, this tournament will take place in the National Indoor Arena in Dublin (22-25 June).

Badminton Europe spoke to David McGill, tournament organizer for the 3rd BWF FZ Forza Irish Para-Badminton International who works for Badminton Ireland, in charge of Events and Membership in the national federation.


In addition to his insight from the interview, he added ‘Badminton Ireland would like to welcome all the visiting teams to the 3rd Irish Para Badminton International. This event has been a great addition to our calendar and we have seen it go from strength to strength since it was first hosted in 2015 in Baldoyle Badminton Centre. This year we are delighted to hold the event in Sport Ireland’s new National Indoor Arena in Dublin. A fantastic 12 courts facility featuring spectator seating, viewing gallery and a large indoor athletics track.’

He further highlighted, ‘We are also very much looking forward to showcasing our new live scoring and streaming system which will allow players and spectators to monitor scores from every court live. Our team are working tirelessly to ensure all aspects of this year’s event are catered for and we hope that all participants will enjoy their time here in Ireland.’
