Young Officials

Ways to get involved

We have an exciting opportunity for students to officiate at our two national junior competition finals next year.
National Schools Badminton Championships National Junior League
28-29 April 2018                12-13 May 2018
The successful applicants will stay at the National Badminton Centre in Milton Keynes and will get the chance to be a part of the largest schools participation event with over 40,000 children representing more than 1,500 schools during the championships. Students will act as young officials and will use our digital technology to score matches from an umpire’s chair. Students will receive free accommodation, food, drink and Babolat kit, reasonable travel costs will also be covered.
In addition to young officials we are looking for two young adults to manage the young officials. The position of Young Officials Manager is more suitable to young adults who may have been a young official in the past; or who has experience of working with young people. Young Officials Managers will need to be aged at least 18 years of age on or before 26 April 2018 to apply for the position.
If you have any students who are interested in either of the above positions, please ask them to complete the young official application form and return it to us no later than Friday 9 February 2018.
