Reidy new high performance director
Ex-pro player and Olympian Tom Reidy is the new high performance director of Badminton Ireland.
The appointment follows a decision by Badminton Ireland to strengthen its high performance team after the London Olympics where, for a second, time, two Irish players had qualified.
Reidy, originally from Adare, Co Limerick, played for the USA in the men’s doubles at the 1992 Olympic Games. He then moved to Sweden where he played professional badminton for two years before beginning a distinguished career as a coach, most recently working at the Swedish National Badminton Centre.
Reidy has already taken the Irish squad for one session at the National Training Centre in Marino.
