The British Wrestling Association is a member of The Sport and Recreation Alliance (S&RA).
Following a vote of the Sports members, Helene Raynsford, (Paralympic Champion and Chair of the British Paralympic Association Athletes Commission,) will become an Elected Director.
Helene competed at the 2008 Summer Paralympics and received a Gold medal winning the women’s single sculls and she will bring her experience of her many years working in government and public health to the Alliance Board
The S&RA has a strong governance model with a mixture of appointed and elected Directors on their Board.
The S&RA provides advice, support and guidance to its members and the sector, who represent traditional governing bodies of games and sport, county sports partnerships, outdoor recreation, water pursuits, and movement and dance exercise.
As the independent voice of the sector, they work with Government, policy makers and the media to make sure grassroots sport and recreation grows and thrives. Having an active nation is important as it delivers huge benefits to society and the millions of participants, volunteers, staff and spectators.
