Cost of living pressures putting grassroots sport at risk


Cost of living pressures, including elevated energy, facility and insurance costs, are putting the future of many grassroots sports clubs at risk – and threatening to freeze young people out of participation, research from home security company Ring and Sported has uncovered.

The Community Pulse survey from among Sported’s network of almost 3,000 community-based groups across the UK found that over nine in ten were “extremely or fairly concerned” about the impact of increased costs on their operations. 

With 51% of the clubs and organisations responding operating in the 30% most deprived areas of the country – and most run and operated by volunteers – the current challenges in play threaten the infrastructure that gives young people an opportunity to be active and to address many of society’s pressing issues such as mental health and crime prevention.
