On this page you will find content relating to 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
As new information becomes available to us we will add it here: it will cover events, opportunities for players, clubs and coaches. There are many agencies involved: Sport England, BE, Local Authorities, county-wide co-ordinating organisations like ourselves, HBA and HSBA, and the umbrella organisation 'Herts is Ready for Winners' whose website is continually updated and where you can sign up for their regular newlsetters as we count-down to the Games.
If you know of something going on in your club, sports centre or area please email HBA Development Co-ordinator, Dave Bartlett or newsletter editor Gill Bartlett.
Our Badminton Herts Development Committee will also be helping make the most of this unique opportunity, so if you have any events, ideas or jsut want to register that you'd like to be involved, please contact your BHDC Representative, see details by clicking here
