Sport Wales – Putting enterprise at the heart of club development


Gordon Clark, Senior Officer, Sport Wales


One of the great presentations at Sustainable Community Sport, 26th June, Vicarage Road, Watford FC

In the past two years Sport Wales has been at the forefront of developing a new approach to club development which sees enterprise at its heart. For a while grants and support have increasingly been focused towards developing sustainable community sports providers, often based on social enterprise principles. Sport Wales recently launched Community Sports Strategy talks about Thriving Clubs – creating opportunities through good enterprise and innovation.

Gordon Clark has often taken the lead in this development. In taking this approach Gordon has fostered a partnership with the Welsh Business Advisory Service which means that sports clubs are able to access a holistic approach to club development which explores both the business aspects of the club as well as the potential to deliver sustainable sporting opportunities.

Gordon will share how this approach is contributing to delivering the Vision for Sport in Wales and how Sport Wales are trying to change the culture of the whole sports industry.

Gordon has over 20 years’ experience in the sports development world having worked for local authorities in Scotland and England as well as 4 years with Sport England and 8 years with Sport Wales as a Senior Officer
