Become a Badminton Volunteer

Volunteers are an incredible asset within our sport and supply an unlimited amount of experience and support to the day to day running of Badminton throughout the country, from Major Events to weekly No Strings sessions.  To Badminton England, a volunteer is much more than a person who gives up their free time; they are an invaluable member of a family-like community.
We are on the lookout for more people to get involved and become Badminton England volunteers to help make our sport happen!
Whether you are interested in supporting a local club, leadership, assisting a league committee or being part of a major event we can help, as our Volunteer Portal is dedicated to recruiting, retaining and rewarding our volunteer workforce, as well as helping external organisations to recruit volunteers. The Volunteer Portal allows you to create a customised profile and search the breadth of England for any upcoming volunteering opportunities.
