Mum’s sports company in Pontybodkin, Flintshire nominated for national award

A SPORTS company has been nominated for an award for its flexible working.

Enjoy-a-Ball, run by Sharon and Gary Bassett from Pontybodkin, has been shortlisted in the Franchisee of the Year category of the 2011 Mum and Working awards.

The awards are organised by www.mumandworking.co.uk and reward and recognise the firms and individuals that promote flexible working.

Sharon said: “We believe in flexible working to allow people to flourish as well as to ensure that our customers have the best experience ever with the most committed and capable coaches.

“Over the past five years we have promoted such opportunities as well as followed recommendations from our customers for enthusiastic and able mums, dads, brothers and sisters wishing to become part of our team.”

The company provides a coaching programme which teaches children aged two and a half to 10 sports such as basketball, volleyball, football and rugby.

The finalists will be announced in September and invited to the awards ceremony at the Business Mums Summit in Brighton in October.
