Our Aims

We support the same principles and targets as BADMINTON England.

To abide by and endeavour to ensure others abide by BADMINTON England's Child Protection Policy and the Code of Ethics and Conduct ("the Code").

To promote and encourage badminton in schools and for young people in Herfordshire .

To develop badminton as a sport for all and to help all players to reach their potential and progress up through the rankings whether at club, county or International level.

To co-operate with all members such as Junior Schools, Senior Schools, Colleges and Junior Clubs.

To ensure that young players in the county have access to regular high quality coaching and playing opportunities.


We run a series of closed tournaments throughout the season for eligible boys and girls to compete against county and non- county players. All entrants must either reside in Hertfordshire or attend school within the county boundary or satisfy our eligibility criteria covering affiliated clubs. These events cover singles, level doubles and mixed doubles for all junior age groups. We also invite Hertfordshire primary schools to an inter-county tournament where teams of players compete against each other for medals and trophies.

Additionally, we host annual open tournaments supported by BADMINTON England which attract the top junior players from around the country.

Fuller details about these tournaments are available by clicking on the appropriate links.


Hertfordshire currently runs weekly squad nights for 5 separate age groups, comprising U11's, U13's, U15's, U17's and U19's. Squad sessions are divided into winter and spring terms and run concurrently with the school calendar.

Selection to each of the squads is made at our annual trials, which currently take place in June. Our experienced squad managers remain exclusively responsible for the selection process. Squad practice sessions are carefully arranged to allow best development practice whilst ensuring the smooth running of each squad.

Although juniors are eligible for selection to senior county matches, all players remain members of the squad appropriate to their date of birth.


Election of a Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary and Child Welfare Officer together with other committee members takes place at the Annual General Meeting in accordance with our Constitution.
