WHAT WE DO
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
4 separate age groups, comprising Development/U11's, U13's,
U15's and U17'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 July. 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.
