Founded in 1970 Bourne End Junior Sports Club is a registered charity run by volunteers to provide sport and recreation for children and young people, with many being highly qualified in their own sport. The Sports Hall in New Road, Bourne End was built in 1982 and later extended to include a climbing wall and a club room, plus further changing facilities. BEJSC is entirely self-funding and is recognised as a successful and unique centre.
The multi-sport centre is used extensively by club members and members of the whole community. Please visit our website for more information www.bejsc.co.uk.
We currently offer 7 different sports to members aged from 2 to 18+ years – Badminton, Basketball, Canoeing, Climbing, Football, Table Tennis and Swimming. Membership numbers range from 500 to 600 with many young people playing several sports. Some sports are competitive whilst others are for learning new activities and building confidence and friendships. Some of our members play their sport at very high levels, County and Regional.
BEJSC Directors encourage all young people to “put something back into the club” through volunteering to ensure the future of this unique organisation. We have an active Junior Committee made up of representatives from the various Sections. Many take part in a Young leaders Course organised by Action4Youth which is a valuable way of enhancing the personal skills and development of the young people and we know from past experience, it is of great benefit not only to our club but to other organisations in the future. The young people give club members a voice in the development of the club as well as improving communication between the different Sports Sections and Directors. We have 9 Directors and six of these are former club members, including the Chairman Matthew Todd and Treasurer Nick Pink. Four of the Sections are run by former members.
