Join In

Does your club need an extra pair of hands on a club night or help out at your local league competition? Join In can help!  Join In helps community sports clubs and groups to find more volunteers and supporters in their local area.

We think that local sports clubs are the heart of our communities – but we know that local sport doesn’t just happen. It takes teams of brilliant, generous people to share their time and skills, and give something back. Together, you help to make our communities happier, healthier and more active places to live. And Join In wants to spread that message.

You can help by sharing this great video of our Athens 2004 4x100m relay team (Jason Gardener, Darren Campbell, Marlon Devonish, and Mark Lewis-Francis) reunited in the quest for volunteers, plus see what sprinter Christian Malcolm has to say how your clubs can get help.


Right now, 7 out of 10 sports clubs need more volunteers. As an official Games legacy charity Join In want to change that. Their aim is to help you find more supporters and helpers in your neighbourhood, whenever you need them. 

Thousands of local sports clubs and groups have already added their page on Join In. Here are just a few reasons why:
