NEW! Guidance for clubs to welcome women & girls
To support the return of Sport England's This Girl Can campaign, Club Matters have created guidance specifically for sports clubs to help them think about how best to welcome women & girls.  The new interactive guide explores the motivations behind women doing sport, outlines potential barriers which may stop them from becoming regular club members and gives practical tips that clubs can follow to overcome these.

Sustainable Clubs
A typical sports club spends around 30% of its running costs on energy!

A website,  has been developed on behalf of Sport England and the Pitch Sports Group.  It provides guidance to help community sports clubs use environmental sustainability to reduce their running costs. It contains a range of advice from understanding how much energy a club uses through to identifying, prioritising and funding sustainability projects
