Rushden Town Bowling Club are reaping the rewards of their hard work this week as they became only the second Bowls club in the county to obtain Clubmark accreditation.
Clubmark is a national accreditation scheme co-ordinated by Sport England for community sports clubs which demonstrates that a club has higher standards of welfare, equity, coaching and management.
Achieving Clubmark shows that a club provides a safe environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
The club President Hubert Dickens accepted the award from Felicity Howlett (Northamptonshire Sport Club Development Officer) at a presentation evening a few days ago.
They were also joined by the Mayor of Rushden Cllr Mrs Barbara Jenney who congratulated the club on their hard work and said,
"Rushden Town Bowling Club is at the heart of the community and they have made fantastic efforts to ensure that the club is accessible for all."
Brian Langton, who led the way in achieving the accreditation for the club added that,
"We are proud to say that we have newly trained coaches to help deliver coaching sessions and we have made our rinks accessible for wheelchair users. We welcome new members young and older with little or no experience at all."
