HWLTC Achieves LTA Clubmark Status

Clubmark is a scheme that was introduced by Sport England to recognise places to play sport that offer a quality development programme and operate in line with best practice.

To achieve Clubmark status, a club needs to demonstrate current and ongoing quality in general club management, policies & procedures, sports programmes and long-term planning to remain a high quality sports facility. Tennis is one of 34 sports in which clubs aim to achieve Clubmark status.

Following a huge amount of work by the committee, and especially countless hours put in by chairman Joe Rylett, we can confirm that this week HWLTC were officially awarded LTA Clubmark status. There will be a shiny new Clubmark plaque installed in the clubhouse soon.

At High Wycombe Lawn Tennis Club on 22nd November, Bucks LTA Tennis Development Manager Rob Ellis congratulates chairman Joe Rylett on HWLTC gaining LTA Clubmark status.

But achieving LTA Clubmark status is only part of the story. With procedures and plans in place, we need to continue work to ensure that standards are maintained and targets are met, so this is not the last you will hear of Clubmark. The Clubmark pack (pictured above with Rob and Joe) will soon be available in the clubhouse for all members to view at any time. This includes information ranging from health & safety policies to accounting budgets and our business plan, so we hope members will take the chance to have a look.

This is a significant achievement for HWLTC, recognising the great work done every day by the club’s committee, coaching team and all club members who contribute to the running of our club.
