Kilcullen Badminton update

Sinead's Grade 2 ladies started the week by playing Portarlington in their last South West League group match on Monday 09 November. The girls wanted to finish the group stages with a win even though they had already made it to the semi finals. In a close match the girls came away with a great 3-1 victory, but the scores reflected how close the games were. Well played to Sinead, Gillian, Annette and Lynsey in a close match and good luck in your semi final.

Entertaining Mountmellick in the complex also on Tuesday night were Orla's Grade 6 South West League. In a great match to watch Orla's team came out the victors beating the visitors 3-1. This win guarantees Orla, Meave, Dayna and Grace a semi final spot as they sit second in their table behind Portlaoise BC Ladies 1.

In all the SW League has been a great success so far with eight out of the nine teams entered making a semi final and one team making a final!!Congratulations to all the Ladies and Mens teams and their captains on a great Southwest season so far. Hopefully we can keep the same standard in the Dublin District League.

On Tuesday 10 November Bernie and her Division 3 Ladies travelled to Old Bawn in their Dublin District League round 1 Cup match. It wasn’t to be the ladies night and they were beaten 3-1. Hard luck to Bernie, Sinead, Catherine and Chelsey.

Wednesday 11 November Lynsey and the Division 2 Mix 1 team visited An Caislean Nua in the first round of their DDL Cup. Unfortunately the Kilcullen outfit were beaten 3-1 in some very tough and close games to an organised and well coached An Caislean Nua team. Hard luck to Lynsey, Gareth, Declan and super sub Gillian.
If there are any of you that enjoy watching badminton then you go see the Irish squad play a Selection of European badminton players at the Watershed, Kilkenny at 3pm on Sunday November 29th.
