Return-to-Play Update - 23rd February

With lockdown we’ve been a little bit quiet, working on things behind the scenes, but following the government’s announcement yesterday we just wanted to reach out to you all to let you know that we’re reviewing the Return to Play situation.

Do you have too much kit, taking up space in your drawers and never getting worn?

 

Or, do you want even more? Maybe you're a student, just starting out and in need of a basic jersey or a pair of decent shorts - or maybe you're a bit of a hoarder. Jerseys, shorts, discs, anything! Just give it to me! 

 

Now there's a place to buy and sell used Ultimate kit. And the best part? The money goes to charity. Everybody wins.

Sport and Recreation Alliance Impact of COVID-19 on Grassroots Activity Survey

The last year has been incredibly tough for all sports clubs. Lockdowns, restrictions and social-distancing has seen many temporarily close or a reduction in capacity to deliver and participate.

The Sport and Recreation Alliance are reaching out to clubs across all sports to understand the current picture of grassroots physical activity and how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected clubs.

If you are a club committee member, coach or volunteer – please take 15 minutes to complete this survey which will help the Sport and Recreation Alliance to understand what you need and how we can work to support clubs with welcoming back your members.

By gaining an accurate picture of what has happened to your membership, income and ability to operate – we will be able to more accurately support you in our conversations with government and other partners.

Please take part in this survey here.

Thank you to all of the individuals that donated to our Reset the Stall campaign!

We're working on processing everyone's rewards, but for now here is a small thank you to each and every one of you.
