Sad News

We are sad to announce the passing of Tony Clarke, a long serving and guiding light for HJBA since 1980. He will be sorely missed by all his family, friends, colleagues and the many hundreds of badminton players that he has inspired over the years. Some details of his many achievements can be found here.

If you would like to make donation, the family's chosen charity is Parkinson's UK. Donations can be given through the tribute site that has been set up here, where you can also leave your thoughts and photographs.
