Endorsements from the Community -

"Basingstoke Sports Council is a hugely valuable professional asset to the community working closely with key partners bringing them together with a common aim of encouraging grass roots participation in sport and exercise. I applaud the many different ways in which they support and promote our sporting community plus co-ordinate both the annual Festival of Sport plus prestigious Sports Awards evening at the Apollo Hotel" - Maria Miller; MP for Basingstoke (July 2019)

"Basingstoke Sports Council is a valuable asset to the community with it's ability to bring clubs together under a common goal, support clubs in need of help and allow clubs to establish a network of helpers which is an integral part of the local sporting infra structure.  Without the work of the sports council a number of local clubs would not be able to keep running, resulting in a loss of sporting opportunities for a number of people in the Basingstoke area." - Jimmy Miller; Contract Manager, Basingstoke and Deane Community Leisure Trust (May 2019)

"Basingstoke Sports Council is a valuable resource in the local community, offering support and education for parents, coaches and athletes of all abilities. From a personal point of view, they have been invaluable in organising educational evenings to disseminate up-to-date information on illness and injury causes, prevention and management. They also help to promote the value of exercise for health and well being." - Dr Mike Rossiter;  Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Trust & Vice President of The Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine UK (April 2019)
