How healthy is your sports club?

We have launched a short survey to find out more about the things that are currently affecting the health of our community sports clubs – from how many members you have, to whether you run a bar or any social activities or if you pay any of your players.

In answering the survey, we want to get a quick snap shot of the community sport landscape so we can provide the best advice and guidance, and develop resources tailored to the needs of people running community sport.

Clubs like yours form a key part of the community sport system and are a great environment for people to start playing sport regularly. However, we know that there can be challenges; whether it be navigating the new business rates system or recruiting enough volunteers to keep the club going.

Some of the questions will ask for your club’s address and information about your club’s income. This is solely to provide us with information to help us analyse some of the financial issues clubs face. This data will not be passed on from Sport England or shared with any third parties.

More information and guidance for community sports clubs can be found on the Sport England website. Sport England also runs a specialist website, Club Leaders, to help sports clubs improve their business skills.
