Badminton Ireland Court Officials Group Line Judge division will be holding two training courses at the start of the season, before the Irish International, but if there is enough interest we will hold more courses.

We would like to see a course held in Connacht, Munster, Ulster and Leinster if at all possible so as to give everyone equal opportunities to attend.


The course will be 3 hours in length and during the course you will be shown the correct signals used by line judges, how and where to sit on the court.

If you are interested in attending or organising one in your province please express your interest to info@badmintonireland.com. We will forward you on details of what you need and what is required for the course and then we can organise dates to suit.

Remember line judging is not only in Ireland!!

With experience you can get the opportunity to travel to other countries in europe and maybe even the rest of the world but to be eligible to that you need to attend a line judge course where we will explain what you need to do.

Looking forward to hearing from all you eager line judges out there.
