Volunteer at the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships!

To keep updated with 2018 opportunities, please visit the volunteer portal here.   

The Volunteer Information Guide will be available later this year. The successful running of any event has long relied on the enthusiasm and commitment of an army of dedicated volunteers. The YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships – one of the Badminton World Federation’s five Premier events on the 12-tournament Super Series circuit – is one of these such events.

Volunteers old and new turn up year after year to work at our major events and Badminton England aims to recruit volunteers who will bring passion, enthusiasm and energy to an event. There are teams of drivers to collect international guests from the airport or railway station, stewards in the arena, media centre staff, match control and shuttle control staff, not to mention umpires and line judges!

It is a team effort and each year new members are introduced into the various departments, many of whom the public never see but who ensure the show goes on in its slick and professional way. It’s never too late to get involved and volunteering offers an opportunity for people of all ages, from students to retirement age. For most roles little training is needed, just a burning enthusiasm and the willingness to be part of a team. Note:

  • Badminton England will provide volunteers with free meals during their shifts
  • Each volunteer will be given an official uniform to wear and will have the opportunity to keep their uniform as a souvenir of their experience and contribution to the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships
  • Accommodation will not be provided
