Club Matters

Club Matters is Sport England’s new, one-stop-shop of support, learning and guidance for your club! Club Matters tools provide you with support, learning and guidance on all parts of running your club whether it is large, small, formal or informal, established or you are looking to start from scratch.

Why join a club?

So you enjoy playing basketball and are interested in playing outside of your studies...but are not sure if joining a club is for you. Well, you have come to the right place, because this section outlines all the reasons why club membership may (or may not) be for you and what will be expected of you once you join.


Here you you can find details of various funding programmes which your club, team, organisation or project may be eligible for. Details of funding pots with a wider remit than sport, but which may award funding to sports or health projects are included also.

Recruitment & Retention

This section contains loads of helpful tips and info on stuff you can do for the people who keep your club running.

Starting & Affiliating a club

If there are no basketball clubs in your area and you’re committed to starting and running one, then this is the place for you.
