David and Margaret are both badminton Umpires and if you play badminton in Wales then you will know them!

Over the years David and Margaret have given their time to badminton through umpiring, line judging and organising events across Wales. 

David has been umpiring for many years, travelling across the country to do so. Out of the umpire’s chair, David is a key member of the Conwy Badminton community where he sits on the association’s committee and is Secretary of the County league as well as organising and running the Jim Wiseman Senior Satellite event in November each year.

Margaret has officiated at several events across Europe and her experience has been recognised by Badminton England who appoint her to organise the officials during the prestigious All England Premier Super Series. She has also officiated at Commonwealth and Olympic Games!
In 2013, Badminton Wales acknowledged her contribution to badminton at the Welsh Nationals where she was presented with an award. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all officials who volunteer and give their time; without them our events could not run.
