Amateur Clubs & Grassroots

Sports participation is widespread in the UK. There are the same challenges for amateur clubs as there are for professional clubs and grassroots clubs. Participants will always remain the most significant component of any sport, and perhaps the most important.

People might not appreciate that amateur clubs are as answerable as their professional counterparts to governing bodies and the law and that they will sometimes require assistance and representation in regulatory and disciplinary matters.

Similarly, those playing at the grassroots level may be doing so only for a short period before they become elite athletes playing at either semi-professional or professional level.

We have extensive experience in advising amateur sportspeople and clubs, and the expertise to advise and assist those involved.
