We believe that volunteering should be FUN. It’s often hard work but it should always be rewarding and make you feel like you were useful.

Below is our current list of Volunteering Opportunities. If you’re interested in helping us with one of these, or would like to let us know about what skills you’d like to use or practice, fill in our Volunteer Expression of Interest form here >





Time Commitment

Cross Country

Inspire, cheer and motivate participants by covering one of the marshal points on the course. This crucial role ensures the event runs smoothly and participants feel motivated. This role is perfect for team players with great communication skills who can use their initiative when dealing with anything that may occur on the course.

County Table Tennis Championships

Why not come along and help us to run our annual County Table Tennis Championships for our Youth Club members from across Essex. In this role you may be required to umpire a few matches (if you are unsure of the rules, don’t worry they will be handed out to you), help with setting up and setting  down of equipment  and maybe even a bit of photography to help record the event.
