The Cardiff 10km is a regular RVBA fund raising event for various charities including the RVBA Official Charity, the World Wildlife Foundation.
Former British Olympic coach and coach to Richard Vaughan, Lee Jae Bok commented “Having worked with Richard throughout his career I have no doubt he will have all the skills required to produce good technical players and more importantly help move these players successfully through the transition from junior to senior badminton. He has a great understanding of technique from a Chinese/Korean perspective while benefiting from European people, and management skills. Badminton Wales is very lucky to have such a coach”.
