Bowlers hit the jack with accreditation
WELLINGBOROUGH Bowling Club has become the first bowls club in Northamptonshire to be awarded a Clubmark accreditation.
Clubmark is the acknowledged accreditation scheme for community sports clubs and demonstrates that a club is the right environment for the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport.
The local club has been recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages and also helps parents and carers know they’re choosing the right club.
Members of Wellingborough Bowling Club joined the committee to celebrate the achievement last week and the award was presented by Felicity Howlett on behalf of Northamptonshire Sport and Sport England.
Terry Falkner, chairman of the management committee, said: “We are delighted to be the first bowls club in the county to achieve Clubmark accreditation status, which highlights the excellent work that is taking place at Wellingborough Bowling Club. The accreditation is testament to the hard work of volunteers at the club who ensure bowls can be enjoyed safely by members and newcomers.”
Wellingborough Bowls Club is open seven days a week and welcomes new members of all ages as well as absolute beginners. Check out the website: wellbowls.com or call: 01933 222527.
