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. BEJSC is entirely self-funded and is recognised as a successful, prestigious and unique centre.
The multi-sport centre (built in 1982 and extended in 1997) is used extensively by club members and members of the whole community. We offer 8 different sports to members aged from 5 to 18+ years – Badminton, Basketball, Canoeing, Climbing, Football, Inline Hockey, Table Tennis and Swimming. Membership numbers are currently at over 500 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 County, Regional and National levels.
Whilst the centre provides facilities for the majority of our sports, our swim section (Bourne End Junior Swim Club) still relies on use of the Wycombe Leisure Centre, which in itself is a fantastic swimming pool, but timetable constraints and circumstances outside of our control reduces pool time for our swim team. There are around 200 members of the swim section and expansion is restricted due to lack of access to a suitable facility.
