Hertfordshire Sports Village
de Havilland Campus
Comets Badminton Club is one of the largest and most successful badminton clubs in Hertfordshire serving St Albans , Hatfield and surrounding areas. It is a sociable but competitive badminton club which was established in 1979 at Gosling Stadium in Welwyn and moved to Hertfordshire Sports Village (HSV) in Hatfield in 2003.
The sports hall at HSV is built to international playing standards and only opened in September 2003. The floors are sprung wood, the courts well spaced and the ceiling very high – I don’t think anyone has managed to reach it yet! With lighting to the side of the courts and full length green curtains, the visibility is excellent. Most of our club nights and matches are played on the dedicated badminton courts with no other sport markings on the floor and permanent posts – so there’s no setting up – just turn up and play.
Badminton England regularly use our venue for their own tournaments and the lighting in all the badminton halls was upgraded in Jan 2012 in line with Badminton England's high standards.
As well as lots of great quality Badminton, we also get together socially a few times per year and encourage all our members to participate in the social side of the club.
We currently run 9 teams in both the Herts county leagues and the South West Herts area badminton league.
