Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross-sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs.

Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs.

It stands for:

  • Higher standards of welfare, equity, coaching and management in community sports clubs
  • Making sure the nation’s sports club infrastructure is safer, stronger and more successful

It shows that a club provides the right environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.

An accredited club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages as well as helping parents and carers know that they’re choosing the right club for their young people.

Clubmark is now administered using an online portal via the Sport England Club Matters website. Upon registering your club for Clubmark, you will be assigned a Table Tennis England Assessor who will support you through the process. The guidance notes and templates below are designed to help your club through the accreditation step by step. Please be advised that the below templates are for guidance and it is not mandatory to use all templates if you already have existing examples.
