The Guernsey Sports Commission is a charitable organisation set up in 2004 to promote sport & physical activity in Guernsey. Our Policy & Strategy document for 2013/2014 set out our aims going forward.
The Guernsey Sports Commission conduct a facilities strategy every two years. This allows us to get an accurate level of information of existing participation and facilities. It enables us to evaluate and assess the quality of existing facilities and any maintenance requirements. It assesses the sufficiency of existing facilities and to evaluate deficiency of facilities and what may be required, and to inform other interested parties of needs, requirements and the importance of sport and required facilities.
