We are pleased to have the VICTOR Badminton Oceania Championships return to Victoria, Australia in February 2020 - this time in Ballarat for the third time!
The occasion will also mark the first time where para-badminton athletes will compete alongside the able-bodied players at the Oceania Championships.
The Ballarat Badminton Association are thrilled to be hosting the Championships, which incorporates the Oceania Men’s and Women’s Teams events, individual badminton events and individual para-badminton events.
With the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games' around the corner, we are expecting the best players from nations and territories across the Oceania region. The championships hosted in Melbourne 2019 already broke numerous records in the history of the event.
A badminton event not to be missed! - We're looking for some star event team members to get behind our athletes and showcase regional Victoria to our visiting shuttlers from interstate and overseas!
If you think you're the right person, or know of a person - enquire about the roles today!
Basic knowledge of the rules of badminton is ideal to become a Line Judge. However, all training be provided! You'll be provided with uniform, meals during shifts AND of course court-side seats to the LIVE action!
Live Stream Assistants
Badminton Oceania will have live-streamed badminton courts throughout the week, which will require constant supervision throughout the day. Your main role, however, is to enter data before and during each match, live, on the allocated court - including the name of players, country flag and the scores during the match.
Canteen and Catering
Very important roles at events surround the food... You can assist in preparation and serving of catering provided for event teams and the customers, spectators and athletes that approach the canteen at venue.
Have you ever been told you have a great radio voice? This could be the gig for you! Announcers are not afraid to get on the microphone and... announce things. Things such as welcoming patrons at the start of each day at the event, introducing players and technical officials as they walk to the field of play before their match, trophy presentation scripts and sponsor messages.
Do you know how to herd people? Marshalls are the key personnel that ensures athletes and technical officials are where they need to be before their allocated match. It helps if you are also a people person - because you will be getting to know many of the athletes and technical officials throughout the event.
Athletes and officials have the option of staying at preferred accommodation, where transport between the accommodation and competition venue is provided. Ballarat is not a huge city, therefore the amount of driving may be frequent, but definitely not as hectic as the Melbourne CBD. A full driver's licence is preferable for any drivers for the event.
All roles are voluntary at the moment. However for further details and discussion, please contact Rhonda or Sandy on +61 3 5339 4601 / +61 427 687 559 or email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
Hope to see you there!
