Sport and Recreation Alliance

The Sport and Recreation Alliance is the new name for the Central Council of Physical Recreation (CCPR) and is the umbrella organisation for the governing and representative bodies of sport and recreation in the UK, representing more than 320 members – such as the FA, the Rugby Football Union, UK Athletics, the Ramblers, British Rowing and the Royal Academy of Dance.

Their role, as a trade association, is to speak up on behalf of their members and represent their views. They promote the interests of sport and recreation and also campaign on major issues such as the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy, the regulatory burden on Sports and Recreation Clubs, attracting major sporting events to the UK and improving access to waterways and countryside.
