Buddle launch offers major boost to grassroots sport and activity

Grassroots sports clubs and community physical activity groups have a new home as Sport England launch Buddle.

The National Lottery funded programme – which replaces their Club Matters offering – will provide free learning and support resources to inspire and strengthen clubs and organisations offering sport and physical activity, as well the professionals that work with them. 

Buddle, which as an amalgamation of ‘buddy’ (the role Sport England will play with these groups) and ‘huddle’ (that symbolises the coming together and collaboration required to help an organisation to be successful) has been developed based on feedback from partners and in conjunction with the existing users.
