SPORT ENGLAND Sports clubs get helping hand

Sports clubs are at the heart of community sport – so we want to look after those who run them. That’s why we’ve launched Club Matters – which provides free and practical help to those involved with a grassroots club.

Whether they’re a club chair writing a plan to attract new members, a treasurer managing budgets or a club captain asking existing members what they want, Club Matters can help their clubs to thrive.

Guidance and support

At its core is a simple website with all the essential resources – but it extends way beyond the keypad. Club Matters provides the following support to clubs:

  • Mentoring – Either for long-term support, or just a short call to sound out ideas, Club Matters’ flexible mentoring scheme offers personal support at a time and place to suit.
  • Club Improvement Plans – Online resource for clubs of all sizes and at all stages of their development, to establish where they are performing well and where they can develop.
  • Club Views – A club survey tool helping users to ask members and volunteers what they think about their club, and make suggestions.
  • Clubmark – The nationally-acknowledged accreditation scheme for community sports clubs. As part of Clubmark accreditation, clubs will have the opportunity to request a Club Matters mentor to help them through the accreditation process.
  • Online Support – Help and guidance in all areas of running a sports club. This includes online toolkits, quick reference guides and e-learning modules.
