Club Support

Whether your club is run by a passionate team of volunteers or a paid management team, there may come a time in most clubs when you need a fresh pair of eyes to review and revise the way in which the club operates.

One of the most commonly used terms that we hear when working with clients is “But we’ve always done it like that” but sadly, if we keep doing what we’ve always done, we’ll keep getting what we always got!

For many years we have successfully supported clubs through difficult times or simply helped clubs grow to the next level. Our work begins with a comprehensive audit of the current situation which then allows us to provide recommendations through a structured report to review and revise current practice. We can then assist the clubs in implementing the necessary suggestions should they wish, guiding, supporting and empowering your teams to deliver the change.

The key areas that we focus on whilst assisting clubs are:

  • Increasing membership and modernising membership models
  • Increasing court/facility usage
  • Increasing revenue and reducing fixed costs
  • Review staffing structures
  • Review coach deployment models
  • Review general process and procedure
  • Streamline membership data management
  • Communication
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Social media and online presence
  • Volunteer structures, attraction, retention and reward

So whether you are a 3 court outdoor traditional members club, an inner city park venue or an indoor centre, we are confident that we can help you.

“Paul helped run my tennis charity (The Cliff Richard Tennis Foundation) for over 10 years, and his knowledge, passion and energy made a huge difference to many children’s lives. I am delighted that Paul has established his own Sports Business Agency, where he will continue to influence change and help raise the profile of tennis and disability sport. Good luck and keep up the great work.”

Sir Cliff Richard, O.B.E

“2012 was a major year for the Tennis Foundation, with its involvement in the Paralympics and broader engagement in helping to develop tennis for the wider community. Paul, as Team Leader for the Wheelchair tennis team, played a significant role in leading and supporting the team in the run up, and during the Games; in addition, he has been providing valuable support and leadership with the Swansea community project, which is focused on making tennis a more accessible and inclusive sport in the city, and which is already delivering great results.”

Geoff Newton, Executive Director, Tennis Foundation

“I worked with Paul in my capacity as Chef de Mission of the ParalympicsGB team at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Paul joined the team, as the Sport Team Leader for Wheelchair Tennis 12 months out from the Games. He was a very popular member of the team and developed very strong relationships with everyone including his athletes and support staff as well as the staff at the British Paralympic Association."

Craig Hunter, Chef de Mission, ParalympicsGB
