The ECB's Clubmark accreditation scheme remains a key component of helping clubs to raise standards in the recreational game.
The historic 3 year accreditation cycle has been a victim of the pandemic, so there have been some amendments made and they will continue to review to ensure it remains fit for purpose for the clubs going through the process.
Clubmark was set up by Sport England but for cricket, ECB signed a licence for them to deliver it. This support has now ended, as Sport England withdrew from Clubmark and withdrew licences from the governing bodies. ECB are now operating the scheme and the requirements to accredit for Clubmark have been refreshed. Accreditation criteria have been much reduced. The scheme is now based on providing Constitutions, Minutes, Bank details, Club Development Plans, Insurance and compliance with SHMS etc. However, all clubs must re-accredit in 2022.
