Darren Hall (born 25 October 1965 in Walthamstow) is a retired badminton player from Great Britain who is generally rated as one of the very best, if not the best, men's singles players that Britain has produced.


He won a record ten English national singles titles from the mid-1980s to the late 1990s. He is the only Englishman since the 1930s to win the prestigious Danish Open (1992) in men's singles. He won the singles gold medal at the 1988 European Badminton Championships, defeating the great Morten Frost in the final.

Hall competed in badminton at the 1992 Summer Olympics in men's singles. He lost in the second round to Zhao Jianhua, of China, 15-6, 15-9.
