About Us

Badminton Wales is the National Governing Body for Wales, formed in 1928 and has a rich heritage being one of only eight founding members of World Badminton – we celebrate our centenary in 2028.

However, despite being proud of our history we are not an organisation that dwells on the past. Badminton Wales Community consists of the Board of Directors , Sub-Committees, Operational Team and network of competitive clubs, social clubs, coaches, volunteers, members throughout the country, responsible for all aspects of the sport, from grass roots participation to performance.

Within the last number of years the Badminton Wales Board has undertaken a major modernisation process and is now one of the most progressive and dynamic within Welsh sport. By joining us, you offer your expertise and in return gain valuable experience of working within a modern National Governing Body of sport.

We are looking for four committed individuals to become Directors for a term of up to three years.

The portfolios to be covered: –
– Legal
– Safeguarding
– Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
– Governance

Who Are We Looking For?

We are keen to hear from individuals wanting to join the Board for the first time and also incumbent Directors seeking a new term of office. Short-listed applicants will be interviewed by an independent Nominations Panel which will make recommendations to the Badminton Wales Board (for Independents) or AGM/EGM (for Badminton Directors).

We welcome interest from any person who is eligible to undertake the role of a Company Director and would particularly encourage applications from women, people with disabilities, Ethnic Minority candidates and Welsh Language speakers, as these groups are currently under-represented on our Board.

Collectively we need the right balance of skills, knowledge, experience, independence and diversity to meet the needs of badminton and the communities we serve. As a group, Board Directors need to demonstrate experience of change management, strategic planning, relationship management, executive performance review, finance, risk assessment and diversity/inclusion.

Who Are We Looking For?

(Remuneration – Voluntary Company Director)

Directors can come from within the Badminton Wales Membership (‘Badminton Directors’) or from outside the Badminton Wales Membership (‘Independents’).

For further information about any of the roles please contact Peter Hybart, Badminton Wales Chair at peter.hybart@badminton.wales.
