Portlaoise Badminton Club has been running for 5 years and is currently based in Vicarstown, Co. Laois (beside Annanough GAA Club). We have 4 courts and approximately 50 members spread across all grades. We play there every Monday and Thursday from 8pm until late. The club caters for players of all levels and beginners are always welcome.
We enter teams in the South West Leinster Leagues and Cups and we have enjoyed great success in the past number of years including winning the South West Cup for Club of the Year in 2017-18. Membership for the season is €70, including all affiliation fees, shuttles for the season and facilities. Coaching is provided from within the club.
We also have a juvenile club for kids aged 7 to 16 years which takes place in St Mary’s Hall in Portlaoise on Saturday mornings from 10 until 11 o’clock. We currently have 23 members within the Juvenile club and it has been up and running for the past 3 years.
Off the court we run a number of social events throughout the year for our members. If you would like to play, give Niall Davis a call on 086 1598737 or send us a message on Facebook. Make sure to follow us on Facebook to get all the latest PBC updates.
