Community Badminton Networks

Our Community Badminton Networks comprise the main local organisations that focus on increasing and delivering badminton across all ages in their Herts area.  See BE webpage on CBNs.  These are typically - clubs, schools, facilities operators, colleges, district council but can vary in each area.  The current four current CBNs are Welwyn Hatfield CBN, Herts West CBN, North Herts CBN, and East Herts CBN. CBNs for other areas are being planned probably as extensions to the existing CBNs.

Update your Email Preferences or miss important information
Please can you remind all your members that they need to update their email preferences on the new Badminton England Go Membership system,  otherwise they will not receive any communication from them.

They should have received a generic message directly from Badminton England once you affiliated your club and all your members but Badminton England have advised that some members have not carried out this simple task.

It only takes a few minutes and  click here for a brief guide which shows members how to do this.

It is important to note that if members do not update this section they will default to “ Do Not Contact” and Badminton England will not send them any future communication.
