Our Expertise

Our research is spread across these core themes

We also take on other work like market research and bespoke commissions, including engaging with young people and hard-to-reach groups.

Work with a team of sport experts

Our key strength is our flexibility. Our team of 18 researchers – which can be increased for data collection purposes – work efficiently and unobtrusively, operating in partnership with deliverers and event providers.

And we're not just sport researchers – we're participants too. All our staff take part in sport and physical activity, mostly through voluntary sports clubs. This gives us an innate understanding of the issues and challenges you face.

Market research

Our team of researchers are trained to Market Research Society standards to conduct fieldwork. We have high-volume scanning equipment and software, so we can process questionnaires at a much faster rate than manual data input.

We also have significant expertise in online surveying. We regularly collect substantial data samples, giving you progress updates in real time and providing access to early findings at the touch of a button.
