1. Introduction and club details

Otium Leisure Consultancy is commissioned by Sport Northern Ireland to carry out a comprehensive research survey of sports clubs across all recognised Governing Bodies. This project will capture data through:
  • An online questionnaire to be completed by all sports clubs
  • Focus group workshops (x 12) at a number of venues across Northern Ireland
As the body leading the development of sport in Northern Ireland, Sport NI is passionate about maximising the power of sport to change lives. It recognises that sports clubs are the lifeblood of our communities and play a key role in lifelong involvement in sport. 

In order to ensure people find it easy to engage and stay engaged in sport, we need to hear how you, the clubs facilitate this. We need to understand more fully the barriers and support required to improve accessibility, connectivity and sustainability of sports club in the coming years.

This is an important piece of work. Your input is, therefore, critical in helping to shape the future direction of sport in Northern Ireland.

There are 65 questions in this questionnaire; it will take approximately 40 minutes to complete. A partially completed questionnaire can be saved and finished at a later time, however for this you must reopen the questionnaire from the same email address or device each time. Note responses are saved only after 'Page 1' is completed.

The questionnaire has been designed to make completion straight forward; the majority of the questions are one click or drop-down menus. It requires knowledge of:
  • Club membership (youth, adult, over 50, male, female, people with disabilities etc)
  • Overview of finances
  • Number of volunteers including coaches (youth, adult, over 50, male, female,   people with disabilities, etc)
  • Facilities used by the club
  • Volunteer recruitment and retention
  • Insights to challenges, aspirations and support for sports clubs
  • And more!
Data Privacy: Any personal information collected will only be used for this project and will be retained by Sport NI for 3 years post project and disposed of in line with Sport NI’s retention and disposal schedule. Your personal data will not be shared but the findings of the survey will be shared beyond Sport NI to inform the sport sector of the current state of sports clubs in NI. If you wish to find out more about how we control and process personal data and protect your privacy, please see: http://www.sportni.net/about-us/procedures/fair-processing/
