What are Community Sport Hubs


Community sport hubs provide a home for sport.

They focus on the clubs and other local organisations that want to work together to improve the sport offered in their local community. Download our 2016 review here.​

A community sport hub is focused on the clubs around a sport centre, community centre, school, park or a playing field pavilion.  In some cases a community sport hub combines a number of these places, or it may simple centre on a single-venue hosting many clubs. The 'hub' is essentially a collective of progressive sport clubs working together in a local community.

Each community sport hub is unique but the common thread is that each works to the following five principles:

  • Growth in participation
  • Engage the local community
  • Promote community leadership
  • Offer a range of sporting opportunities
  • Bring all appropriate (key) partners/ groups/people together.
  • Each community sport hub develops their own vision and values to ensure all involved are clear on the work they will do together, which is detailed in a simple, clear plan to improve the sport on offer.
