HRH The Princess Royal, Patron of sports coach UK, marked our 30th anniversary with a visit to our Leeds HQ. The occasion also celebrated the 25th anniversary of Coachwise, our trading subsidiary.

The Princess Royal was welcomed by sports coach UK Chair, former Olympic rower Chris Baillieu MBE and Chief Executive Dr Tony Byrne.  During her visit, the Princess Royal met staff members and discussed our work, notably support to governing bodies of sport to develop coaches.

She showed particular interest in developments to promote inclusive sport coaching, ensuring that sport meets the needs of the whole community. The Princess Royal was also introduced to staff from Coachwise, which provides a wide range of services to sport, including qualifications and learning management services.
