Volunteer At The Championships

Welcome to the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships Volunteering page.

Each year Badminton England recruits over 200 Volunteers to help us deliver the YONEX All England Badminton Championships. The successful delivery is down to the time, effort and smiles given by our Volunteer team. Every role is critical to us delivering a World Class Event and there is a role to suit everyone.

Volunteering with us: The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Do you find satisfaction and pleasure in giving back? Fancy being part of something big and exciting; a part of a new family with a real sense of achievement? Want to develop skills or improve your mental well-being? Then come and join our volunteering team, forge new friendships and have fun doing it!

Badminton England positively celebrates equality, diversity & inclusion (EDI). Our aim is to become the nation’s most accessible, diverse, and inclusive sport – reflecting and connecting with the diverse communities that we serve. We want people from all walks of life to feel valued for their individuality, thrive in our business and share a sense of belonging.
