The 2015/16 season marks the launch of the Leinster Badminton Premier League (BPL), a new and exciting exhibition of top class competitive badminton. KADCA are very proud to be the only Northside club invited to enter a team. This is a testament to our long standing reputation as one of the leading clubs in Leinster, Ireland and abroad.
While the BPL is a Leinster event each club can have three invitational players from outside the club. A testament to the strength of the league is how excited elite players from outside of Leinster are to get invited to take part in the BPL. KADCA’s BPL squad combines the best of our home grown local players with invitational players from the Irish National Squad. KADCA’s squad is the youngest in the competition so the team has the chance to not only to win a BPL title in its inaugural year but also to potentially to continue to win titles as the squad grows even stronger in the following seasons. Our ladies team, all of whom have played for KADCA since they were juniors have won the Division 1 Ladies League and Cup titles for the last three seasons. Given this very impressive record the team are looking forward to raising their game even further while competing in the Ladies BPL this year.
The BPL is the biggest game changer to happen in Irish badminton for many years. Not only is this a great opportunity for badminton fans, it’s also a great opportunity for sponsors to get involved with the biggest new event on the Irish badminton calendar. As a result everyone associated with it from officials to players to clubs to supporters are doing all they can to promote it both throughout the badminton community and beyond. The BPL will only continue to grow. For this reason and many more it represents an excellent opportunity for potential sponsors. If you would be interested in sponsoring KADCA’s BPL team please contact our chairperson Clare Maguire. Any support would be very much appreciated. Even if you are not in a position to support us financially at this time, we would still encourage you to attend the BPL matches in both Baldoyle Badminton Centre and Whitehall Road and cheer on our KADCA Killers for what promise to be outstanding nights of top class badminton.
