Commonwealth Games Volunteer

Year 9 student Lachlan Woodforth was amongst the first Commonwealth Games junior volunteers. Lachlan is a Brisbane representative squash player so this experience was particularly beneficial.

Lachlan worked 11 of the 12 days that squash was played, in his role as a ‘Sport Competition Team Member’. He worked courtside with the Commonwealth Games athletes, carrying their bags into matches, cleaning the ball and court during matches, ensuring the athletes had everything that they needed and assisted to prepare the courts at the beginning and end of the days. Lachlan also experienced being courtside for the medal ceremonies and managing to have a hit on the Commonwealth Games show court.

During his time volunteering, Lachlan assisted athletes from all the participating countries. He particularly enjoyed meeting and chatting to and having photos with Nick Matthew and James Willstrop from England (who won the Men’s Singles Gold medal and the Men’s Doubles Bronze medal) Lachlan has also been coached by Zac Alexander (Australia) who won the Gold medal in the Men’s Doubles.
