Overview & Background Information
To recognise the phenomenal work of our voluntary workforce, Badminton England present two awards annually; the Geoff Rofe Young Volunteer of the Year Award (sponsored by YONEX) and the Volunteer of the Year Award (sponsored by YONEX). These prestigious titles are awarded to two volunteers who have stood out in demonstrating undoubted passion, commitment and dedication to badminton in the last twelve months and had a positive impact and influence on others’ experience within the sport.
The new Grassroots Coach of the Year Award was introduced for 2022 and celebrates coaches who are working tirelessly in the community to provide a positive experience to a large number of players through their clear passion for the sport. We are truly grateful for the number of grassroots coaches in our sport as these coaches make a positive difference in their local communities, providing the first experience of our sport, and driving badminton participation forwards across the country.
