So whether you are an existing sports club wanting to grow your members or a community group looking to hold sporting activities for the first time, we can offer help in a variety of areas, including:

  • Marketing and promotion to increase the number of people taking part in sporting activity
  • Policies and procedures e.g. safeguarding
  • Structure and functional roles of your club or group
  • Developing new sports session across Nottingham
