Congratulations to BRIERTON COMMUNITY SPORTS CENTRE BADMINTON CLUB on gaining Sport England Clubmark.


Brierton Community Sports Centre BC is the second senior club in the Tees Valley area to gain this important status.


Clubmark is Sport Englandís kite mark for a safe, effective and child friendly club.


The Sport England Clubmark is equivalent to the Silver Award in the Badminton Association of Englandís own Club Accreditation Programme.


One of the main benefits of gaining Clubmark is that it lets parents know that the Club follows best practice in a number of key areas. These are: -

      A continuing safe environment for children to play in.

      A team of Badminton Association of England qualified coaches, dedicated to continue to develop their knowledge of the sport.

      A structure for children to learn and develop new skills in badminton.

      Encourages club membership and with it a route for progression, enjoyment and improved fitness.

      Develops & promotes volunteers who are suitably trained and checked for their suitability to work with children.



Brierton CSC BC play at Brierton Community Sports Centre in Hartlepool. They are involved in all aspects of Junior Badminton in Hartlepool through running junior sessions and links with all schools in the Town.
