Job Details

UK Wallball are looking for experienced and proactive trustees keen to revolutionise the ‘grey’ spaces to help young people get active, social and healthy with just a wall and a ball.

Who we are

UK Wallball is the national governing body for the sport of Wallball – a simple, accessible and inclusive urban sport where you hit a ball against a wall with your hands – a bit like squash, but without a racquet. Our aim is to revolutionise the ‘grey’ spaces in our cities to make sure that every young person, especially those from more disadvantaged backgrounds, have the opportunity to get active, social and healthy with just a wall and ball.

The role

UK Wallball is the national governing body for the sport of Wallball – a simple, accessible and inclusive urban sport where you hit a ball against a wall with your hands – a bit like squash, but without a racquet. Our aim is to revolutionise the ‘grey’ spaces in our cities to make sure that every young person, especially those from more disadvantaged backgrounds, have the opportunity to get active, social and healthy with just a wall and ball. You can see our website HERE and all our socials @ukwallball.

We’re a young and dynamic organisation and we’ve achieved some amazing successes in the past few years, including setting up a phenomenal urban sport playground in London and running a successful schools programme with over 10 thousand kids, some of whom have now been selected for team GB Juniors to compete around the world. In the past year we’ve transformed our organisation into a charity.

We’re now seeking experienced and proactive trustees to join our team. We’re looking to bring in doers with an interest in physical activity and positive outcomes for young people. At our current stage there is real room to help us mould our organisation over the next few years. It’s a really exciting time for UK Wallball as we grow in London and expand our operations to other cities around the country.

We’re looking for people with the following experience, and if you fit the bill please don’t hesitate to get in touch:

  • Treasurer
  • Sport/leisure sector expert
  • Fundraising expert
  • Education/school sector expert
  • Operations and events specialist

Equally if you’re excited about who we are and what we do and think you can add something to the team but don’t necessarily fit the bill above, we’d still love to hear from you!
