Sports Think Tank

n/a

London, United Kingdom

Launched in 2011, the Sports Think Tank is a fully independent think tank dedicated to thorough and insightful thinking around sporting policy in the UK. Based in Loughborough and London, they use various ways to stimulate debate and ensure accountability in sporting policy and governance including social media, blogging, publications, events and engaging with decision makers and governing bodies. We aim to push the boundaries of sports policy and as they are not aligned to any interest group, they are challenging of sport and commercial interests too.
