Club Guide - Club Legal Structure
At England Athletics, we understand that our member clubs are shaped largely by the volunteers who promote participation in their sport, often from generation to generation. While no two clubs are the same, we also recognise that there are many shared issues and common themes which clubs across England face regularly, along with a wide range of marginal gains which can be made off the track, as well as on it, to improve each athlete’s experience.
With this in mind, we feel it is important to identify how clubs can benefit from passing their expertise and experiences to other clubs, particularly in relation to questions about how they should be set up and run. This Guide is intended to explain the different types of legal structure and special tax status (particularly when operating on a not-for-profit basis) which clubs can adopt.
