An olympic legacy

by Kate Cracknell

Will the London Olympics deliver the desired physical activity Legacy? Not as things stand, it seems: with less than a year to go, only 21 per cent of the public think the event will inspire them to become more active; 67 per cent say it won't. [more...]

Using sport to tackle crime and disorder

by Stephen Studd

None of us who watched the television coverage of the UK riots this summer could have failed to be moved by both the shocking scenes and by how violently some young people reacted to the situation. [more...]

Riots were a wake up call

by Liz Terry

Riots have rocked the nation and now that calm has been restored, the analysis begins and hopefully positive change will come. But decision-makers are putting forward analyses and solutions which tie in with their political persuasion, experience and personal views, meaning theres little consensus, so while its obvious somethings wrong, putting a finger on what exactly it is will prove difficult and finding an effective and enduring solution is going to be even more of a challenge. [more...]

Ease of access to Olympic Games

by John Goodbody

There is less than a year to go to the opening of the London Olympics and the excitement is palpably mounting. This is only matched by the recognition and surprise that there are few major obstacles, apart from concern over the recent riots, to overcome before the Opening Ceremony on 27 July 2012. [more...]

Managing attitudes to swimming

by Aleatha Ezra

Pool and waterpark operators within the US got a wake-up call with the release of a survey looking at parents' attitudes on showering before swimming. [more...]

Pressing home the leisure sector

by Stephen Studd

The government's decision last year to reduce funding for education and skills by 25 per cent shifted the onus for skills investment to employers and individuals. Now, employers are expected to commit not just time for training, but more money too. [more...]

Wales will play its part in 2012 spectacle

by Edwina Hart

With London celebrating a year to go until the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Wales is poised to play its part when the world's largest sporting event takes place on our doorstep. [more...]

IMSPA is born

by Liz Terry

In the end, the announcement was so low-key it could almost have been missed. After 30 years locked in mortal combat, ILAM/ISPAL and ISRM had ceased to exist and in their place was the new Chartered Institute for Sport and Physical Activity - IMSPA. [more...]

Working to achieve Olympic successes

by Stephen Studd

This time next year, the majority of the UK will be glued to their television screens or - for those lucky enough to secure a ticket - at the London 2012 venues to watch the world's greatest sporting event unfold. But what does a successful Games look like for the UK? [more...]

Work with employers the SAFE way

by Stephen Studd

With the changes taking place at economic and political levels, it is crucial that we continue to represent our employer's voice and articulate the sector's needs to government, stakeholders and other key funding and decision makers. [more...]

Volunteering gets a boost

by Liz Terry

It's all change again in the world of sport as the new government's policies begin to kick in and the impact of Big Society thinking is felt. We debate the issues this will throw up for the industry in our Talkback feature in Sports Management 2011 issue 2 on page 22 and the general consensus is that sport is well placed to handle these challenges, just as it has dealt with the last 20 years of political shifting sands. [more...]

Independent think tank for sport

by John Goodbody

It's odd that just when this country is on the brink of such a momentous decade of staging international events and when public money has never before been invested so lavishly in sport - that there is no organisation suggesting, let alone charting, long-term future policy in British sport. [more...]

Councils must choose the most appropriate procurement route

by Chris Marriott

The message that local authorities can make big savings by outsourcing the management of their leisure facilities has been received loud and clear. Activity in the leisure outsourcing market has increased markedly since last year; so much so that it seems appropriate to continue with the theme. [more...]

Synergies of sporting success

by Liz Terry

Major sporting events have become big business in the UK over the last 15 years. We're now bidding for world championships across a wide range of sports, while the momentum continues to build for the London 2012 Olympics and the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. [more...]

A conflict of use at the Olympic Stadium

by John Goodbody

So we've ended up with an Olympic Stadium that, after the Games, is not ideal for football, nor athletics; or Leyton Orient, certainly not for Tottenham Hotspur and probably not even for the local residents of Newham. [more...]
