Rebecca White - County Coach
I first picked up a racket at 12 years old, since then I have played for Northants
receiving coaching from Julian Robertson and Kristian Roebuck.
As a junior I was also lucky enough to have the opportunity to train at the Nusa Mahsuri Academy
in Malaysia under Misbun Sidek which was insane; experiencing how they train, my feet still haven’t recovered!
I have also represented Lancashire at Premier County level during university at the University of Central Lancashire
where I gained a BA(Hons) and Masters in Sports Coaching. I hope to use this knowledge of coaching to continue
to develop such a strong county for Badminton.
David Westwood - County Coach
David first picked up a badminton racquet at the
age of eight. He has played for Hertfordshire since
the age of 11 and also represented Loughborough University
as a student. He usually finds time outside of work
and professional studies for all things badminton and
enjoys running around on the hockey field as well. Chris
Adcock once thrashed him at singles.
