Get ready for high quality badminton action as Waikato Badminton Association will be hosting the YONEX Waikato International 2020, a Badminton World Federation International Series event at the Eastlink Badminton Stadium (30 Old Farm Road, Hamilton East) from 26-29 March 2020. The event will welcome over 150 athletes, team officials, event administrators, and volunteers from around the world.

Volunteers play an important part to an event's success – Waikato Badminton is now inviting volunteer registrations. Volunteering offers a great deal of satisfaction and reward from making a difference to people in the community. You can also learn new skills and gain valuable experience in a wide range of areas that may or may not be related to your paid work. It is also a great way to meet new people who share similar interests. There are various opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.

Note, Umpire and Line Judge roles have the best seats in the house! These roles are also a great way to gain experience and be part of an event pathway which could lead to officiating at future events such as the BWF World Junior Championships 2020 and BWF World Senior Championships 2025 in Auckland.

When registering, please indicate which sessions (or specific times) each day you are available for. Preference for positions will be given to people who are the most flexible in the roles and times they can assist. People will also be allocated to roles based on their skills, experience and information provided. Shift times may vary according to the role being performed and the final event schedule. Some volunteer roles may require people to be on-site around 30-60 minutes prior to the session start time. Further instructions and scheduling will be confirmed with volunteers closer to the event.

All volunteer applications will be considered. The organisers reserve the right to select the best suited people for the roles required. An application does not guarantee a position. Please note out-of-town volunteers are not funded and must arrange their own transport and accommodation. Questions regarding volunteer roles or home-stay billeting enquiries can be made with the Event Director through email

All volunteers who contribute at least 12 hours during the event (must include time on either Thursday 26 March or Friday 27 March), will be eligible to receive free court hire credits (1 hour credit for every hour of volunteering) during the year (credits are not transferable).
