KCELL - Where Perfect Practice Makes Perfect
The concept behind KCELL is simple. We are a badminton academy with an specific aim in offering top level coaching to children of all abilities who put badminton first. As the participation numbers grow KCELL in association with Badminton Ireland recognised the need for elite coaching outside of Dublin as a feeder to the high performance set up in Marino. So if you are between the ages of 7 & 17 and badminton is your thing we want to hear from you!
  • Over 20 years collective experience coaching & playing
  • Multipe European medalist and tour winning coaches
  • BWF accredited coaching staff
  • Technical, tactical, physical coaching
  • Every player is important at KCELL, from beginner to elite.
  • Extra over strength & conditioning training
  • With a pedigree for success - KCELL is the obvious choice. 
KCELL was set up by Mark Phelan who has worked for Badminton Europe on the professional circuit since 2010. Mark is a professional badminton photographer as well as badminton journalist and has worked at 2 Olympic Games, 3 world championships and 10 European championships in badminton. Mark brings his media and marketing skills as director of KCELL as well as assisiting coaching as a qualified BWF level 1 coach. 
"I wanted to give the opportunity to kids outside of Dublin to access top level coaching but in a structured way and with the support of Badminton Ireland. I have learned a lot from other academies and federations across Europe over the past 10 years and I hope I can bring some of that knowledge to KCELL over the coming years"
