2019 is a very special year for Irish badminton as we celebrate our 120th Anniversary.  

We are planning a range of events to mark this special milestone and these will be announced over the coming months. The Irish Badminton Union was formed in 1899 following a disagreement between clubs from Wicklow and Dundrum on the structure of their match.  

Dundrum felt that a central body should be formed to legislate on such matters and on November 25th, 1899 the inaugural meeting, attended by delegates from Dalkey, Dundrum, Sandford and Wicklow, was held at 4 Foster Place Dublin and the Irish Badminton Union was established.  In 1901 the Irish Badminton Union passed a resolution that clubs affiliated to it must also be members of the Badminton Association [of England].

Events in 1899 to 1903

  • On November 25th, 1899 at 4 Foster Place, Dublin, the Irish Badminton Union was formed
  • In 1902, the first Irish Open Championships was held at the Earlsford Terrace Rink in Dublin and it proved to be very successful. Interestingly, the Badminton Association of England presented a trophy for the Men’s Singles. 
  • In 1903,  Ireland play England in first ever Badminton International Match at Earlsfort Terrace.
  •  Ailesbury Badminton was formed
Foster Place, Dublin

The Badminton Museum of Ireland

Has a copy of S.M. Massey’s 1911 edition of “Badminton”, which describes the formation of the Irish Badminton Union, along with a copy of the Press report on the match between Dundrum and Wicklow which was the catalyst for the formation of the Irish Badminton Union.

The Badminton Museum of Ireland is currently located in Baldoyle Badminton Centre, Dublin, Ireland.
