Hartlepool cricket club


This club is committed to ensuring that equity is incorporated across all aspects of its development. In doing so it acknowledges and adopts the following Sport England definition of sports equity:

Sports equity is about fairness in sport, equality of access, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them. It is about changing the  culture and structure of sport to ensure it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society.

The club respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.

The club is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse.

All club members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behavior and promote equality of opportunity.

The club will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behavior seriously, according   to club disciplinary procedures.

Hartlepool Cricket Club will encourage officials, coaches and volunteers to uphold best practice in sports equity.

Continuing education in sports equity matters will be encouraged, by attendance at Running Sport Workshops in partnership with Tees Valley Sport.

Hartlepool Cricket Club is registered with Tees Valley Sport as a Performance Club. 

The Club follows the ECB inclusion and Diversity Policy and the Guide to Good Practice for Inclusion and Diversity in Cricket
