The County Sports Partnership Network

County Sports Partnerships (CSPs) are networks of local agencies committed to working together to increase participation in sport and physical activity. Our partners include; National Governing Bodies of Sport and their clubs, School Sport Partnerships, local authorities, sport and leisure facilities, Primary Care Trusts and many other sporting and non-sporting organisations. There are 49 CSPs across the country.

The County Sports Partnership Network (CSPN), brings together the 49 CSPs from across England and is responsible for supporting the delivery of national sports policy at a local level by shaping it to meet the needs of local communities.

The CSPN is very pleased to be continuing its partnership with the YMCA to deliver the Community Games programme and is looking forward to continuing to work together to help communities up and down the country to stage their Community Games.
