Club Development

Clubs are becoming more professional and better organised as they improve their performance and the service they provide for members. Some clubs are keen to recruit more members and expand while others simply want to consolidate.

Whatever stage your club is at, and wherever you are aiming to be, there are many resources that can help you. Including our Workforce Education Programme, which includes a range of courses aimed at supporting you to develop your Club.

Please take a look around our Clubs section below and the subpages for information on:

  • Club Matters
  • Club Development Courses
  • Are you looking to promote your Club and activity sessions?
  • How to raise free funds for your Club by simply shopping online!
  • Key Club resources and links

Club Matters is Sport England's one stop shop for sports clubs. Club Matters provides free, convenient, practical resources to help you develop and run a sustainable club.

We can provide advice and support for you and your club/group to identify the most applicable source of funding and support you with the application process.
