The Under 16 squad coaches would like to welcome all the players selected for the squad for the 2017/18 season. We are looking forward to the new season.
Players born in 2003 or 2004 are eligible for the Under 16 squad. Trials for the squad were held in June 2017, and we selected 28 players:
Boys: Ethan Barnes, Jesse Barnes, Zack Bobrowski, Louis Broad, Edward Chen, Will Davis, Oliver Dickson, Jack Edwards, Toby Goddard, Finley Goode, Harry Goode, Benjamin Herbert, Jay Mathur, Jack Moylan, Gugan Muralitharan, Ben Peacock, Nithin Santhosh, Thomas Sweetnam, Jack Teoh, Sajinth Thayaparan
Tournament play, underpinned by regular high quality
training, is the most effective way to improve as a player,
developing your own skills and learning from other successful
players. So we encourage members of the squad to compete
regularly in these events.
All squad players should compete in the HSBA tournaments
at Stevenage Leisure Centre at their own age group and,
ideally, for an extra challenge, in some of the older age
group events as well. For details about the tournaments

We also expect squad members to play at least four Badminton
England tournaments during the season, though more ambitious
players will play many more. Performances in these tournaments
count towards gradings in the national ranking system. Entry
forms are available from the Badminton England website.

Please keep the coaches up-to-date with your results
at these tournaments.
We play inter-county matches as follows;
Shires League (season-long competition, with play-offs
and then a national finals day in May)
Friendlies (arranged as the calendar permits)
Selection will be on merit, but we also try to give all squad members
opportunities to develop by playing competitively for Hertfordshire.
The present fixture list is
HERE Updates will be made to it as the season progresses, for instance as we add the details of friendly matches with other counties, so squad players should keep an eye on it.
