Badminton Malta is delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Haynes as the National Academy’s new Head Coach and Technical Director. This is another exciting step for a more professional setup at the National Academy.

Haynes was the Team Manager and Coach for Guernsey at the Gold Coast Commonwealth games 2018 and has himself represented Guernsey on multiple occasions, winning Team Gold and Mixed Doubles Bronze at 2 International Island Games. Playing Badminton since 13 Haynes has worked with a variety of skill levels and age groups and Badminton Malta is eager to see what he can bring to the Academy.
