Volunteer at the Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships 2012
The successful running of any event has long relied on the enthusiasm and commitment of an army of dedicated volunteers. The Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships is part of the Badminton World Federation’s five Super Series Premier events and volunteers are crucial to its success.
Many of the same faces turn up year after year to work as volunteers at our major events and BADMINTON England aims to recruit volunteers who will bring passion, enthusiasm and energy to an event.
There are teams of drivers to collect international guests from the airport or railway station, stewards in the arena, media centre staff, match control and shuttle control staff, not to mention umpires and line judges!
It is a team effort and each year new members are introduced into the various departments, many of whom the public never see but who ensure the show goes on in its slick and professional way.
It’s never too late to get involved and volunteering offers an opportunity for people of all ages, from students to retirement age. For most roles little training is needed, all that’s required is a burning enthusiasm and the willingness to be part of a team.
