Burnham Cricket Club is delighted to announce that in 2009 we received ClubMark accreditation.

By achieving ClubMark accreditation the Club has been recognized for its commitment to develop a high quality, welcoming environment for our young members.  We are committed to encouraging young people to take-up sport, improve their talents and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport.

ClubMark is a Sport England initiative introduce in 2002 and is the only national cross sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards.

ClubMark accreditation is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards in four areas:

The playing programme

  • Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children and young people

  • Sports equity and ethics

  • Club management
