Board 2017 - 2018

The board for next season is formed!
Chairman: Sharmaine Linker
Tresurer: Gert van Dam
Secretary: Marianka Wajer
Technical affairs: Tim van Haeringen
External affairs: Igor Damming
The (new) board members introduce themselfs:



My name is Sharmaine Linker, I am 21 years old and I am studying Technology & Operations Management. In the past three years, I was active at my study association: TeMa. At TeMa I have been part of the promotion committee and I organised the yearly international study project. As almost all my TeMa-friends will either graduate this year, or will do an internship next year, I decided to leave TeMa as well to start a new adventure. Next year I will be the chairman of Amor. Next to that, I will become member of both the Sjots- and Diës-committee. If there are any questions left, don’t hesitate to ask them. I hope to see you all in the upcoming year both during trainings and at the activities.

For now, I wish you all a great summer!


Hey eveyone,

Most of you will already know me: I'm Marianka, 23 years old and I'm almost finished with my study phyical therapy. Since the 19th of May, I am the new secretary on the AMOR board. I have been playing badminton for about 12 years, of which the last 4 years have been at AMOR. In addition, I'm also a trainer twice a week. Beside badminton you can find me on the water during the sailing season to give sailing instructions, but I'll be sailing and kite surfing myself aswell!


Dear AMORians,

My name is Tim, and I will take over the position of technical affairs from Igor, who will be doing external affairs from now on. For those of you who do not know me I will briefly introduce myself.

I am 23 years old, and have been living in Groningen for quite some time. At the moment I am doing my masters in mathematics and physics at the RUG, which will still occupy me for some time to come. It has been over 14 years since I started playing badminton. After doing athletics for a while I was interested in trying something new, and my father suggested I would try either badminton or table tennis. I chose badminton(of course) and have been playing ever since. I have played at BC GO! for a long time, another club in Groningen, and I have been playing at AMOR for about 5 years now. This season I also started playing competition for AMOR, which I have really enjoyed a lot.

I look forward to dedicating myself to the club in the coming year together with the rest of the board, and making this a great year!


Dear all,

For everyone that doesn’t know me: I am Igor. I’m going to handle the External Affairs on behalf of the AMOR board 2017 - 2018. I’ve played badminton for about 12 years from which I’ve been a trainer for at least 5 years. I’m studying Econometrics and Operations Research at the RUG. I’m 20 years old and have lived all my life in the greatest city of the Netherlands, the one that is famous for the phrase “There is nothing above…” indeed GRONINGEN. I like to drink a beer with my friends (as a good student is expected to), gaming (PS4) and playing badminton. It will be my 2nd AMOR board year so I’ve already some experience. However I will handle different affairs than I’ve done before so I hope you are in good hands ;)


Dear AMOR members,

I want to notify you that I will be staying on as Treasure at GSBC AMOR. I would like to thank everyone that came before me and I see being a member of this board as a fun, educational and challenging experience. For everyone that doesn’t know me:

I’m Gert van Dam, 23 years old and I life in the city of Groningen. At this moment I’m in my 4th (and last) year of “Bedrijfskunde MER” at the “Hanze Hoogeschool”. I’m currently doing an internship at “Ommelander Ziekhuis” where I’m program-manging in order to improve collaboration with the UMCG. After I’ve played a year of badminton in Dronten, before I went to university, I’ve started playing againg during my semester abroad. When I got back to The Netherlands I started playing at GSBC AMOR.

I’m looking forward to have a great time with my fellow board members and will see all the other AMOR members during the drinks and training!

Kind regards,

Gert van Dam
