Name: Dave Lindley
Based: National Badminton Centre, Milton Keynes
How I got started as a coach: Worked with Nottinghamshire Juniors whilst still competing and enjoyed the positive impact that I could have on young players which helped me to realise that this was what I wanted to do when I had finished competing.
When I retired I took on the head coach role at Nottingham Performance Centre. During this time I also worked with the national squad and have had roles as GB Development coach and now assistant pathway coach.
Ambition: Help to develop a system with the right culture to consistently produce top players who understand what it will take to reach their potential and are driven to achieve their goals.
Major achievements: Helped players to achieve numerous European level tournament wins.
How I relax: Family time, mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, reading, music.
Favourite sport other than badminton: Golf, football and the above.
Things you didn't know: I find really negative people irritating and hard to be around....sort it out!
