There's a whole host of people who help run the Eagles, it's just not down to the coaches. There's lots of things that happen behind the scenes.

Mike is one of the founder members of the Eagles along with Ron. Having played badminton for over 30 years, Mike qualified as a Level 2 coach 4 years ago - a slightly stressful experience!  Mike's also Managing Director of Wrights our main sponsor.
