Badminton England are delighted to invite you to join our 2021 National Volunteer Conference on the afternoon of Saturday 11th September. Unlike previous years, this event will be delivered virtually in the interest of your safety, allowing you to join us from the comfort of your own home.
The focus for this year’s Volunteer Conference is ‘rebuilding badminton following the Coronavirus pandemic.’ This year is more critical than ever to collaborate with our volunteers to ensure badminton comes back even stronger, and so our range of online workshops, networking and keynotes are designed to support you with your return.
You will have opportunities to connect and share practise with other volunteers, and come away inspired to put new ideas into practice locally. We will also announce the winners of our prestigious 2021 YONEX Volunteer of the Year Awards. All workshops, although online, will still have an interactive element to ensure you gain the most out of attending. As part of your registration, you will be asked to select 2 workshops, each from a choice of 3.
The six exciting workshops on offer at this year’s Conference are:
- Rebuilding Your Player Base
