UK: Olympic and Paralympic Games Legacy Survey

Source: Sport and Recreation Alliance (UK)

From Press Release:

Following a tremendous summer of sport and one of Team GB’s most successful Games, the Sport and Recreation Alliance wanted to know whether the UK is on its way to becoming a world-class sporting nation.

In October 2012 the Alliance carried out a survey of volunteers and employees of sports clubs right across the country. A total of 475 responses across more than 37 sports were received and then weighted to be representative of the 150,000 sports clubs in the UK.

The findings make for fascinating reading and key headlines include:

Lack of funding for sports clubs is preventing 3 in 5 clubs (59%) from growing their membership whilst increased running costs are holding back the growth of almost the same amount again (54%). Similarly, half (51%) can’t grow their membership because of a lack of affordable venues/facilities.

2 in 5 clubs (42%) have seen an increase in the number of people joining their club since the Games this year but a quarter (26%) of these clubs are struggling to meet this demand.

9 in 10 (89%) clubs have reported no change in the number of disabled people joining their club.

Three quarters of clubs (78%) have noticed no change in the number of people volunteering following the Games.
