Brentwood Trampoline Club were delighted to be invited to the launch of activebrentwood yesterday (link here) at the Brentwood Centre. This initiative is being run in conjunction with sportessex (link here) and has two complementary goals:
- to increase the level of participation in sport; and
- to produce 10 performers with the capability to represent GB in the 2012 Olympics and 3 actual Olympians.
Following the presentation our representatives were invited to sit down together with those from other leading clubs and Bob McLintock (currently Chief Exec of Brentwood Borough Council but soon to be taking on a leading role in developing 2012 for the Borough), to discuss what was needed to encourage and develop the Elite end of sport in Brentwood.
Other member clubs are:
- Brentwood Hockey Club
- Brentwood Rugby Football Club
- Brentwood Swimming Club
- Brentwood Volleyball Club
- Champions Academy for Basketball
- Glendene Cycle Club and
- Hutton FC
