Record Growth in Club Membership Numbers for Scottish Institutions
The numbers are in and SSS are excited to announce a 12% growth in club membership numbers in the 2019/20 academic year. Check out the sport-specific breakdown and highlights here!
Scottish Student Sport are delighted to report that across Scotland, the collective total club membership numbers has reached just under 40,000. Here are some of the facts behind the numbers…
- Across 571 student sports clubs there are 39,947 individuals reported to be taking part in club activity. This healthy annual growth of 12% is representative of the hard work put in by the staff, volunteers and students at each institution working hard to ensure good quality, fun and friendly sport and physical activity are available on campus.
- We are delighted to see a huge increase in the reported involvement of students with a disability with that number reaching a total of 1,330 students.
- The sex balance reported is 45% male, 48% female and 6% unknown.
- There is slight movement in the top 10 sports per membership numbers with Netball moving up and Tennis moving down. Each sport in the top 10, with the exception of mountaineering, have all increased in size since the 2018/19 reporting.
