BEJSC is a registered charity with over 500 members participating in 8 sports, it owns a multi-purpose sports hall and climbing wall. Ages range from 5-18, but adults and external groups can hire the facilities and climbing wall.
Bourne End Junior Sports Club is provides the opportunity for children and young people to participate in sports and recreation and to develop social and leadership skills within the community through participation in activities organised by the club.
The Bourne End Junior Sports Club (BEJSC) is a charity set up in 1970 by a group of parents.
Since then BEJSC had earned an enviable reputation all over Southern England.
The Club is a unique example of what can be achieved when a community cares about its young people by providing opportunities for their future development.
The Club is a registered charity; it has always been and still continues to be run by volunteers. It is managed by a board of directors, some of whom are section leaders. The leaders are supported by helpers; many of these are parents. All dedicate an enormous amount of time and commitment to the members and many become qualified to coach their sport. These ingredients make the Club the success it is today.
In 1982 the Club’s own multi-purpose Sports Hall was opened by HRH The Princess Anne, the Club patron for the following four years. In 1997 a large extension which included a climbing wall was opened by Sir Steve Redgrave CBE.
The investment in a sports hall has become a true community asset with over 3500 children having benefited from BEJSC. The hall is also used by school pupils, adult education, mums and toddlers, and many adults who enjoy the excellent facilities.
Many other charities, national and local, benefit from funds raised by local groups in conjunction with the Sports Club. The swimming section has raised over £20,000 for disabled swimmers to enter the Paraplegic Games.
