Registered Charity Status

Jack Collard

22 Feb 2024

We are delighted to announce that British Roundnet is now a registered charity.

We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone in the journey of British Roundnet – after 6 months of discussion and planning, we are now officially registered as a charity with the Charity Commission for England and Wales. This momentous occasion marks a pivotal step forward in our mission to promote and grow the sport of Roundnet across the England, Wales and Scotland.

With our newly acquired charity status (Charity Number: 1207089), British Roundnet is poised to further our efforts in fostering inclusivity, accessibility, and community engagement through Roundnet. This achievement wouldn't have been possible without the unwavering support of our dedicated members, volunteers, and newly appointed board of trustees. We'll write a separate blog introducing our trustees and the wider volunteer team soon.

So, what does this mean for British Roundnet and the wider Roundnet community in Britain?

1. Enhanced Outreach and Impact: As a registered charity, we have increased opportunities to engage with communities, schools, and organizations to introduce Roundnet to a wider audience. Through educational programs, outreach initiatives, and events, we aim to spread awareness about the benefits of Roundnet and encourage participation at all levels.

2. Sustainable Growth: Charity status provides us with a solid foundation for long-term sustainability. It enables us to seek funding and support from grants, donations, and corporate partnerships, ensuring the continued development and expansion of Roundnet in GB. Every contribution received will directly contribute to advancing our charitable objectives and initiatives.

3. Commitment to Social Responsibility: At British Roundnet, we are committed to using Roundnet as a vehicle for positive social change. Through our charitable activities, we will actively promote diversity, equality, and mental well-being within the Roundnet community.

4. Transparent Governance: As a registered charity, we are bound by strict regulations and governance standards set forth by the Charity Commission. This ensures transparency, accountability, and ethical conduct in all our operations and decision-making processes.

We are incredibly excited about the opportunities that lie ahead as we embark on this new chapter as a registered charity. If you have any questions about what this means or what to learn more, please reach out via our contact form.

In the meantime, we will see you at our first event of 2024 - the Sheffield Spring Open.
