Comets JBC is a badminton club aimed at ages 8-18 that meets at Herts Sports Village. It aims to teach newcomers to badminton, but also the more experienced players and help them improve their techniques. 

We achieved BADMINTON England 'Premier' accreditation (the same as Sport England Clubmark) in 2005 for our quality standards and are currently re-applying. We encourage our members to play in local and national tournaments and we have matches with other clubs. 

We are currently operating a waiting list due to the club being full. contact Gill for further information (email at the bottom under contact us).
