Bocce Australia Board of Management is delighted to announce the appointment of a part-time National Development Officer (NDO) for Bocce.
We request you all to join us in welcoming Vinay Singh to the Bocce Australia fraternity.
Vinay will take on the position of NDO to help drive the Bocce One program. He is in his final year of a Sports and Events Management course at Deakin University.
As part of his internship, Vinay has accepted an initial three-month assignment as the Bocce NDO, with a view to further extending his role.
As you will read from his biography below, Vinay has had assignments with Geelong Football Club, Fencing Australia and other sports, and will bring new concepts and perspectives to the sport of bocce. We look forward to his impact on bocce sport over the coming months.
Coming from India, Vinay has spent most of his childhood playing sports such as cricket, shotput, and badminton. He comes from a non-sporting family and fighting against all odds, he has been a terrific sports person.
He has won few accolades in sports too. Vinay was selected to play in the Under-22 National Cricket Tournament when he was just 15, and he has won a gold medal in state level for shotput which saw him making his way for the national trials.
After completing his bachelor’s degree in instrumentation engineering and working full-time as an automation engineer for 16 months, he moved to Melbourne in June 2019 with the aim of becoming a sports development officer. He is currently completing his Master of Business Administration (Sports Management) at Deakin University.
Vinay has experience in volunteering as a cricket coach, a discus and shotput coach, and he has been delivering sports programs in schools and community cricket clubs.
He has been involved with organisations such as Swimming Victoria, South Melbourne Football Club, and Melbourne University Cricket Club for past two years, and he has also worked for Tennis Australia showcasing his customer care skills.
Vinay interned with the Australian Fencing Federation for three months where he executed administrative tasks and undertook social media content creation activities. Most recently, he started working as a sports operations officer at Kardinia Park Stadium Trust in Geelong.
Vinay has a genuine interest in helping to bring communities together through sport. His long-term goal is to help India win more medals at international events such as the Olympics and Commonwealth Games so the country can sit among the top sporting nations.
