Our Club Matters website has free, convenient and practical resources for community clubs, groups and organisations that deliver sport and physical activity, helping them grow and become more sustainable and successful. 

For a short introduction to what Club Matters offers, take a look at our video below.

The support from Club Matters is split into four topic areas:

  • Club finances – helping you build a sustainable financial system, giving you access to practical advice on managing your funds, budgeting, generating income and more. 
  • Club management – ensuring you have the right development plan, taking into account the club structure, potential partnerships, governance processes and giving you access to the right facilities you need to run your club. 
  • Club people – explaining how to recruit new people and develop your existing workforce including members, volunteers and coaches.
  • Club marketing – helping you communicate what you’re offering effectively as a key to successful marketing and promotion.
