The day's event, 16 December, included a visit by Badminton Bronze Olympic Medalists Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge to Stanborough School (photo by Mike Piggford) and St John's Lemsford (below), which as keen badminton players they were very excited about.











In the evening, owing to Chris being unavailable Herts Senior Squad member, Zach Daniels, partnered Marcus to play against representatives of our junior and senior squads and about 15 clubs. The evening was very ably MC-ed by HBA Chairman, Paul Kempster, who as a player for many years, knows many of the participants.
