ClubMark

Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs which shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.

A survey of clubs who accredited in 2018 showed that 98% of clubs believe the scheme is important to them as a club and will continue with accreditation in the future and 60% of clubs agreed that going through the accreditation process had improved them as a club. There are currently over 1600 accredited cricket clubs across England & Wales, with a further 350 working through the process.

In 2021 the ECB introduced the Safe Hands Management System which helps clubs with understanding and meeting their safeguarding responsibilities. This system is a key part of obtaining ECB Clubmark accreditation, but in addition we also review a clubs development plans for the future, together with key governance documents as required under the UK Sport’s Code for Sports Governance.
