Membership & Benefits

Membership of Hertfordshire Badminton Association

The Fees and Benefits of HBA Membership 2019-20

Fees

Membership of Badminton England and Hertfordshire Badminton Association should be automatic to those who belong to an affiliated club.

Badminton England introduced a new GoMembership system in 2017. Badminton clubs who wish to affiliate to Badminton England have to pay a club fee depending on how many club players they have. The club fees for 2019-20 are listed below but there are three important changes:

The membership season is now 1 November to 31 October. All Badminton England benefits are extended from 31 August to 1 November.

Cheques will no longer be accepted. Payments should be made through Stripe, GoCardless and BACS.

Compete members will join Badminton England directly and not through their club. The Compete fee includes the £12.00 club affiliation fee.

The Badminton England document explaining all the changes is available through this link BE Fees 2019-20
