BASKETBALL: Devils make their mark
10:00am Saturday 12th January 2013 in Sport
Didcot Devils Basketball Club are celebrating receiving a Clubmark award with a funding boost of £500, having secured 50 junior members since launching in 2009.
“Clubmark is a quality accreditation for junior sports clubs,” explained club treasurer Heather Coombs.
“Applying for it helped us put the right procedures in place, like training a welfare officer and preparing a development plan that will see us grow to 100 members in the next three years.”
Didcot have strong community ties and run a primary school league for pupils in years five and six, who attend after-school clubs at Northbourne, Hagbourne, All-Saints, Ladygrove Park, Chilton and Stephen Freeman schools.
The club are hoping to broaden their appeal by launching a girls section for over 14s.
