Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible.
Herts Badminton Association Committee members and top players cannot comprehend how this decision was made given the Olympic successes and progress towards Tokyo Olympics. See BE website article
It will also be a big disappointment to our aspiring juniors of all standards.
We categorically support Head Office appeal to UK Sport and Sport Resolutions (UK) and expect a speedy reversal of the decision.
