Karen Stalker and Ronnie Conway AGM 2013Paisley-born Glasgow solicitor Ronnie Conway is the new President of BADMINTONscotland.

The former Scotland internationalist succeeds Karen Stalker, who has been the President for the last two years.

Conway, who will steer the governing body through the exciting Commonwealth Games phase, takes the presidency for an unprecedented second time, having already served in 1997-99.

His senior vice-president is former Scotland internationalist and National Head Coach Dan Travers, who will step up in 2015. Ian Campbell was elected junior vice-president.

Conway said: “I am thrilled and honoured to be given this chance, especially for a second term.

“It is an exciting time for Scottish badminton, not just because of next year’s Commonwealth Games coming to the city but also because of the big strides BADMINTONscotland are taking in terms of both development initiatives and the emergence of new young talent.

“Our flagship tournament, the Scottish International Championships, has just been elevated to Grand Prix status and that bodes well for attracting world-class stars to our great city.”

Stalker said: “Looking back over my two years in office, it has been both a hectic and challenging time and my most prevailing feeling is one of pride and honour to have been given the opportunity to act as President.

“I am sure Ronnie will embrace the challenge before him, especially as he can bring to the job his experience of having performed the role before.”
