Lindfield Bowling Club joined a select group of bowls clubs to be awarded Clubmark accreditation in Sussex.
The club was recognised by County Sports Partnership, Active Sussex, as continuously providing high quality opportunities to new and potential bowlers, for outdoor flat green bowls and the chance to try indoor bowls during winter months.
Mick O’Donnell, the club’s Clubmark Coordinator, said: ‘We’re delighted to be in the first group of bowls clubs in Sussex to get this status. This achievement recognises the fantastic work by our coaches and volunteers who make this a club to be proud of.’
Active Sussex is licensed by Sport England to award Clubmark status to sports clubs. Anthony Statham, Sport Development Manager said: ‘They have demonstrated a real commitment to developing their club and delivering high quality opportunities for people in their community.’
Anthony presented the certificate to the club at a special ceremony last month. Will Blunden, Chairman of Lindfield Parish Council, spoke at the event congratulating the club on their enthusiasm for the sport and that there is clearly a strong youth section coming through.
