Wapping accredited with ClubMark

Posted by Rachel Gaston on 2 March 2019

February was a double celebration for Wapping Hockey Club, alongside celebrating our 30th birthday, we were also accredited with England Hockey’s ClubMark status!

Club Mark certificate

ClubMark is a universally acknowledged scheme for community sports clubs which shows a dedication to high standard of welfare, equity, coaching and management within community sports clubs and makes clubs safer, stronger and more successful. The accreditation is currently only held by four London hockey clubs (Wapping, Blackheath, East London and Upminster). With this new status, Wapping demonstrates that it is governed according to best practice and is in a fantastic position to build on its present achievements – the club currently has eleven men’s teams, eight women’s teams, two masters, and two mixed teams as well as a dedicated youth section, Wapping Kidds, which strives to make hockey accessible to young people in the area.


Matthew Patterson, Chairperson, Wapping Hockey Club commented:

‘ClubMark is a great achievement for Wapping and shows how dedicated we are to maintaining good practice in line with the sports standards. We’re proud to be one of four London Clubs accredited with ClubMark and of the hard work and dedication our members put in week on week to make the club successful. With our 30th birthday as well, February was a great month for Wapping and we look forward to continuing to build on this success in the months and years to come.’
