Ardee Badminton Club is open to new members who would like to take up a sport that is enjoyed by both the young — and the not-so-young.

The club caters for players at any level, from beginners right up to those who want to compete at league level and with four courts available in the Ardee Community School gym, the club can offer plenty of court time for its members.

Ardee Badminton Club competes primarily in the leagues of the Meath Badminton Association — from grade seven up to grade three — in Mens, Ladies and Mixed sections. The club also enters teams into the Louth leagues, as well as other competitions.

In 2015, Ardee Badminton Club were awarded the prestigious Club of the Year accolade for success on the court and their efforts off it in promoting the game.

The club has members who do not play in the leagues but still enjoy the social and active aspects of the game on club night. Everyone plays with everyone else which contributes to an extremely friendly atmosphere.

Ardee Badminton Club has a very successful and vibrant underage group with kids of all ages and abilities in action. Some are discovering the game for the first time while others come back year after year because they enjoy it.

Emphasis is placed on having fun, respecting opponents and fair play but there are still opportunities for the kids to demonstrate their competitive tendencies as the club do play friendlies against neighbouring clubs.

The weekly club night takes place on Thursday evenings in the gym at Ardee Community School. New members are always welcome at the following times — 7:30–8:30pm: Kids (typically from ages 8–13); 8:30–11pm: Juveniles & Adults.
