We're really excited to announce that we've launched our new podcast series The Sport and Recreation Podcast, which you'll find on your preferred podcast listening platform. We want to share some of the great stories from around the sector that demonstrate how the power of sport and recreation can change lives and bring communities together.

Who's the podcast for?

We think our podcast will appeal to anyone involved in sport and recreation who wants a dynamic, forward thinking sector that's fit for the future. Primarily it will be of interest to our members, their staff and volunteers and anyone else that is interested in topical issues that affect the sector. 

What can you expect in the coming months?

Our first full length episode discusses the latest political twists and turns with Brexit and explains the likely implications in the sport sector  now that Theresa May’s deal has been defeated. Our next podcast episode will feature our exclusive interview with Tim Hollingsworth, CEO of Sport England from our Fit for the Future Convention, that took place earlier this week. Looking ahead we'll be discussing topics like:
  • mental health
  • the spending review 
  • volunteering
  • ways to increase activity rates among children 
  • creative ways organisations have generated new income streams. 

We'd love to hear from you about anything sport and recreation related; if you have an idea, good practice to share, a question, or want to join us for a chat, get in touch on Twitter @sportrectweets or email


Without all the amazing volunteers, sport in England simply wouldn’t happen. No gold medals. No cheering crowds. None of it. 

All of your energy and enthusiasm helps make us a healthier, happier nation.  And now we want to help you. We are working with Sport England to learn more about your volunteering experiences. By taking this 10-minute survey, you could help us to improve the support and opportunities available to volunteers.



Within this latest instalment of the Sport:80 Digital Transformation series, Gary Hargraves, looks at how technology can transform business models in the sport sector, specifically membership. 
How to think differently about dealing with data breaches
Prevention is important – but how you respond to a breach is vital too. Sports organisations rely on online services, websites and data as much as any other business or charity – and so the rise of data breaches is presenting new challenges.
