The Herefordshire Badminton Academy was started by local badminton players and coaches to provide young people with the opportunity to experience, enjoy and develop their potential in the sport of badminton.
We invite you to come along to our training sessions and see how we can help you reach your potential in Badminton.
All our coaching is led by qualified coaches who are members of BADMINTON England's Coaches Register and have DBS (formerly known as CRB) clearance from BADMINTON England for their suitability for working with young people. Our volunteers are also DBS cleared and many are working toward coaching qualifications. In order to develop the more able players
