From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

Community Sport Network delighted with start

0 0
Three months on from its launch, Community Sport Network is delighted to report a hugely successful start.

Community Sport Network was launched by the Inspired Exchange team on August 12th, 2013 – the one year anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony.

The free-of-charge community sport news service was created as part of Inspired Exchange’s personal commitment to ensure a tangible legacy from the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

The ultimate aim is for Community Sport Network to become the definitive news service for grassroots sport and things currently look well on track. 

In three months, the website has received over 6,000 unique visits, 130,000 page visits and more than 350,000 hits. 

Community Sport Network has already built up over 1,700 subscribers for our bi-weekly newsletter with real influence in the world of community sport.

To date - less than 1% of readers have unsubscribed.

In addition, high profile guest interviews to have featured in Community Sport Network include the likes of London 2012 chairman Lord Sebastian Coe, Paralympic icon Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Culture Secretary Maria Miller and Sported Founder Sir Keith Mills.

"We have been somewhat surprised but equally delighted with the fantastic start we have made since our launch,” said Community Sport Network Editor Tom Degun.

"It is credit to the whole team at Inspired Exchange that Community Sport Network has proved such a useful resource so quickly. 

"It is been particularly satisfying to have secured such a subscriber list that includes many key figures in Government and at leading sports organisations such as UK Sport, Sport England, Youth Sport Trust, the BOA, the BPA, Sport Leaders UK and various other leading individuals in community sport including school headteachers and top health professionals. 

"But Community Sport Network is not just a service for decision-makers; it is a resource for everyone and everyone with an involvement/interest in grassroots sport.

"All forms of feedback and input from our readers continue to be sought and welcomed by the Community Sport Network team.”

To add to our offering – Community Sport Network is set to launch a new "Jobs Board” before the end of the year featuring exciting career opportunities in the community sport sector.

"We envision the Jobs Board will become another useful resource we can offer to the sector,” said Degun.

"We are confident that it will compliment the current Community Sport Network offering and help us build on our strong start.

"So it is exciting times ahead!”
