May 31, 2022

Badminton New Zealand is delighted to announce the appointment of Simone Naylor to the Board of Badminton New Zealand. With an unfilled vacancy from the 2022 AGM, the Board Appointments Panel put forward Simone to fill the role until next year’s AGM, where Associations will have the opportunity to vote on the continuation of this appointment.

"We are delighted to have Simone join the Board of Badminton New Zealand, especially as she is so well connected and respected in the badminton community."

Chief Executive Stephen Nelson comments, "In addition to Simone’s strong badminton knowledge, her connection to other sports, and especially tennis, will be hugely valuable."

Simone brings a wealth of experiences to the Board, with a strong commercial background, specifically within the insurance industry. Simone is currently the Sports Co-Ordinator for Heretaunga College.

Simone's sporting experience extends across the Wellington region, with previous roles as Badminton Hutt Valley's Development Officer and Sports Co-Ordinator for Hutt Valley High School. In her spare weekends, Simone also competes for Hutt Valley in the Inter-Association Masters & Veterans competition.

Badminton New Zealand warmly welcomes Simone to the Board.
