Herts Senior Clubs

Senior Clubs

This season's list of mainly league-playing clubs is organised by location and are updated mainly when clubs and league organisers provide fresh details. Clubs are shown on the Badminton England website.
Clubs in bold are affiliated or associated to Herts Badminton Association and BADMINTON England (BE) through which they have their insurance, child protection and equity status (see Membership Benefits).
Clubs are accredited for standards of quality by BE for: Duty of Care and Child Protection; Coaching and Competition; Sports Equity Ethics a;nd Club Management. Clubs that achieve this standard are called  'Premier' and is the same as Sport England 'Clubmark' in other sports. Accredited clubs are also shown on the BE, Herts Sports Partnership and some Local Authority websites as 'Clubmark Clubs'.  
Adult clubs that take juniors are indicated '(jnrs)' beside their name, any age restrictions are shown, for example '>13yrs' meaning over 13 years old. Clubs that take juniors who are 16+ are included here but more details are on the Junior clubs page.

Update your Email Preferences or miss important information
Please can you remind all your members that they need to update their email preferences on the new Badminton England Go Membership system,  otherwise they will not receive any communication from them.

They should have received a generic message directly from Badminton England once you affiliated your club and all your members but Badminton England have advised that some members have not carried out this simple task.

It only takes a few minutes and  click here for a brief guide which shows members how to do this.

It is important to note that if members do not update this section they will default to “ Do Not Contact” and Badminton England will not send them any future communication.
