Badminton Canterbury is governed by a volunteer board – you can read more about them below.  The board meets once a month January through to November each year, and anyone is welcome to come to the meetings.  If you would like to come to a meeting, please contact us as we do change locations from time to time.  Past minutes and annual reports can be found at the bottom of this page.

Our AGM is held in April each year, and board positions are for a two year term.  Board members need to be able to commit to one board meeting a month (evenings, 7-10pm), plus there are occasional emails between meetings.  The type of skills are required of a board member are:

Hi, I’m Christchurch born and bred and have been involved with Badminton Canterbury since 2009.  I have three daughters in their late teens and early twenties who have been playing since badminton since they were at primary school.  My focus is on helping to develop and grow junior badminton in our region and I believe we are making great progress and with the recent appointment of our new professional coach from Scotland, we are looking at very exciting times ahead.  Badminton is a great sport for children of all ages and abilities and has a wonderful social aspect that involves parents and families.  When I’m not wearing my hat at Canterbury Junior Convenor, I run my own commercial flooring business.
