Latest News


HJBA restarted county training sessions from September 9th for last season's squads, with attendance and playing strictly controlled to the Badminton England (BE) 'Return to Play' guidelines. The sessions will continue at Hertfordshire Sports Village for 6 sessions, until 14th October.

On 21st October, the week before half term, we will be arranging a trial session for next season for both existing squad members and potential new members. The session organisation will depend on how many players want to attend and will be confirmed closer to the date.

If you are considering trialling for one of the squads, please discuss this first with your coach/club organiser. A form is available for download here which you should complete and return to the relevant squad manager by email by Friday 16th October. You will then be given Playwaze (the BE recommended online booking system) sign up instructions to allow you to book onto your age group trial session. Please note that attendance at the trials has to be controlled for COVID security and you will not be allowed to play unless you pre-book through Playwaze.


We are pleased to advertise some new badminton sessions;

  • Two junior and family badminton sessions in Hoddesdon and Cheshunt, organised by Ian Robinson, starting on 16th and 17th September (click here for details)
