About Me

Charmaine Reid grew up playing many sports including badminton in her backyard with her family. Over the years Charmaine’s hard work and determination to reach the highest level paid off when she walked into the Opening Ceremony at the 2004 Olympic Games.

Away from competing on the courts I am a television commentator and court-side presenter. I’ve commentated for various networks at major tournaments around the world including the Olympic Games, World Championships and for the Premier Badminton League.
