These dates are also available in the complete County calendar page (where you can also import Google calendars for your use).

Children are selected to train with the County if they are considered of an appropriate standard to represent the County in the Shires Junior County League, or if they display the potential to develop to that standard. The County sessions are run by a Badminton England qualified Coach, with assistance from Senior and Masters County players.

Players can prove their ability in a number of ways, including by representing the County, by performances in local (Fun or Futures) or circuit (BE Bronze, Silver and Gold) tournaments.

If you are a coach or a parent who have a child whom you believe is at the appropriate standard to trial for acceptance into the County training programme, please contact badminton@bates.net for further information.

If your child has been accepted to train with the County squad, or play for a County team, please ensure that you have completed the registration form online.
