Senior School Points
The points system for Senior Schools was begun a number of years
ago. Originally meant for affiliated schools only, it has now been
expanded to players from all Senior School taking part in HSBA tournaments.
Points are awarded - on a sliding scale - to players for positions
reached in the knockout stages of the tournament in each age group.
Points are added together for each school - girls and boys separately
- to provide a winner at the end of the season.
players from out of county schools are included in the points, their
school would not be awarded the trophy if they won as they are not
Hertfordshire schools. The league table is compiled by Megan Lumb
at the end of each season, and included in the previous seasons'
results page, found here.
Badminton Tournament & Coaching for Primary School Children
Team Championship: We invite you to enter a team of three
in this exciting tournament. More than one team can be entered but
please make sure that there are enough adults or experienced team
captains to look after the teams.
Each team will consist of 3 or 4 players (all boys or all
girls), any three of whom can play in each match
Each match will consist of one game of singles game and
one game of doubles.
Each game will be played to 21 points.
Each team will play at least four matches
trophies, medals or certificates will be awarded to the
top three teams in each of the boys, girls and combined (boys
and girls results) competitions.
This is a good introduction to competitive play for young players.
It is a friendly tournament, which we hope will encourage fair play
and team spirit.
Coaching: The format is designed to cater for all
ages and abilities, but it is particularly suitable for newer players
and those receiving limited coaching. We will have several experienced
coaches working with the players. The players will be divided into
small groups and each group will move round to the coaches to learn
a variety of skills. Participants do not have to be part of a team
competing in the team tournament.
This season 24 different badminton tournaments are open
to children born in, living in or attending schools in the county.
Our aim is to give children of all abilities the opportunity
to play badminton in a safe, competitive and fun environment,
against competitors of the same age.
The tournaments are run in “Soccer World Cup”
format - competitors are divided into groups, and play everyone
in their group.
This is followed by a second stage of knock-out rounds in “main”
and “plate” events - at least one more game for
Players will have a minimum of 3 group games and 1 knockout
game, with more if they keep on winning.
Prizes are awarded as follows
Main event winners
Main event runners up
Main event semi finalists
Plate event winners
Plate event runners up
Plate event semi finalists
Our “B” singles competitions (9th &16th November 2014) are particularly suitable for school and club
players with less experience. (County players do not play in these
events.) However players are welcome to enter any competition at
all, in their age group or above.
If you run a club or teach in a school where badminton is played
why not bring along a group. It's a great way to keep fit and socialise!!!
