Sports Clubs & Leisure Centres
The fall in average UK household disposable income since 2008 may well result in lower sales revenues for many sports clubs, hotels, restaurants, theatres and leisure centres - resulting in lower profits. A reduction in operating costs will help to counter this profit drop, and the BSA is ideally placed to help you to do just that, through its range of purchasing support services and buying power.
Through our "BSA4Sport" division, BSA has boosted the profits of countless UK sports clubs and leisure centres/venues through a combination of purchasing advice, specific cost category tendering and BSA4Sport Buying Group. Clients include sports clubs, racehorsing venues, theatre groups, hotels, restaurants and leisure centres.

For a review of the print spend across our 15 sites we used the Buying Support Agency, to input their expert understanding of print cost drivers and the print services market place. They have made an enormous contribution by helping us secure significant savings on price and also by optimising specifications and our ways of working.Ian Sidgwick, Group Purchasing Director, the Jockey Club
We engaged with the services of BSA4Sport Buying Group recently to review our costs across our 19 leisure centre sites. We’ve been delighted with the results so far, with over £60k of estimated annual savings identified so far across janitorial, workwear, PPE, office supplies and water. We’re now reviewing other running costs with BSA4Sport and expect to improve our cashflow and profitability significantly thanks to their buying power and procurement expertise. We would definitely recommend BSA4Sport Buying Group to other leisure centres and sports clubs.Joe Simpson, Abbeycroft Leisure
I’m so glad that I agreed to work with BSA4Sport Buying Group; they’ve saved 39% off our telecoms costs, 15% off our water bills, and our annual catering food cost will fall by £10,000 without any deterioration in food quality or customer service. That’s given our club’s cash flow a real boost. I would recommend BSA4Sport Buying Group to any sports club.T. Rawlinson, General Manager, Ringway Golf Club
