Quality Club Scheme Reaches 1000

A scheme which raises standards in sports clubs across the country has now achieved 1000 fully accredited clubs in 20 different sports.  It means that Sport England's Clubmark scheme is rapidly becoming the established quality standard for all sports clubs in the country. 

Presentations of Clubmark awards to clubs in 20 sports across nine English regions will take place during the next couple of weeks to mark the 1000 club achievement.  Brierton Community Sports Centre BC is to represent BADMINTON England.

Our own Olympic Silver Medalist and Yonex All England Champion Gail Emms said, "Badminton has a very good junior club system with ever increasing numbers taking part.  Our challenge now is to raise standards even further.  The Clubmark scheme will help aid this".
