We have been working hard with Badminton England to revise our constitution so that it is clearer and uses BE 'best practice'. An EGM was held on 29th April which unanimously voted for the new constitution which has now been adopted. Download the new constitution from the downloads page or by clicking HERE.

One of the changes involved a name change for the association, which in future will be known as Hertfordshire Junior Badminton Association (HJBA). You will see the the new name appearing over the next few weeks as documents, social media and the web site are updated, but it will take some time, so please bear with us during the change. We will be using a new website address (www.hjba.org.uk) , so if you have any short cuts saved using the old site, please update them!

We would like to thank all those involved in the writing of the new constitution, and those who participated in the EGM, whether by attending or casting their proxy vote.

Need more information? Just drop us an email!
