You asked and we listened! Over here at Club Matters, we’ve been working on some new and improved ways to make sure you’re receiving all the most up-to date information in the easiest way and we’re delighted to share two exciting updates with you! Have a read below to find out all about our ‘Club Natters’ podcast and Facebook Live training workshops, both launching in the coming months.
Club Natters podcast
You’ll remember we announced at the beginning of the year that we will be launching a brand-new podcast. Now the time has come to reveal a bit more about Club Natters.
Club Natters will feature expert advice and top tips on key topics relating to running a sports club, and with the new GDPR regulations coming into force in May, our first podcast will discuss all things Data Protection. In each podcast, we’ll also be catching up with high profile sports people in our Club Matters Meets interview, as well as speaking to Sport England experts to answer any other questions you’ve got – so make sure you get in touch with your queries.
To present Club Natters, we have enlisted respected sports journalist, Glenn Moore. Glenn has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, spending 23 years writing for The Independent, covering an enormous range of sports. In fact, the only thing that can match Glenn’s knowledge of sport is his passion for grassroots participation, so we’re delighted to have him on board.
Club Natters will be available later in the month through your usual podcast apps, or on the Club Matters website!
Facebook Live training workshops
Starting from April, we are going to be producing online training workshops that we’ll be hosting on our Facebook page. We’ve listened to your feedback, and so each session will focus on a key topic that you’ve told us you would like to know more about. Each training session will feature contributions from a panel of experts from across the sports industry, and will provide you with all the top tips on how you can develop these processes within your own clubs.
Our first workshop will focus on Club Finances. We’ll be discussing the best way to manage money and keep costs under control, as well as how you can make use of additional support such as Gift Aid and grants.
Most importantly, we’ll be taking your questions live throughout the session, so do make sure you’re following us on Facebook @SportEnglandClubMatters and get your questions in!
We’re continuing to work on more ways to make sure you can keep up to date with all the key information from Club Matters in the most convenient ways, so watch this space for more information!
