Respected across Sussex and Kent for providing support to grass roots sports clubs

Our team understands that amateur clubs face challenges every day such as being answerable to governing bodies and often require assistance and representation in regulatory and disciplinary matters. Members of our team also sit on disciplinary panels for the Sussex FA.

The team is also at the forefront of helping grass roots sports clubs develop and run as sustainable businesses. Our priorities focus on ensuring they can draw on resources that allow them to provide high quality facilities to attract sporting talent and remain profitable so their long term future is secure.

Our work in this area includes company incorporation and setting up charitable status, merger and acquisition, and development projects around new sports and social centres and training facilities.

Supporting sports club trustees and directors

Rix & Kay’s Sport Team works with individuals, who often give their valuable time for free, to ensure their own personal interests are protected.

Our work ranges from helping trustees and directors to respond to governing bodies who may be seeking information on regulatory and disciplinary matters to personal liability surrounding areas such as on field accidents and injury. Our dedicated Private Client Team also supports individuals on all areas of tax planning and trusts, property and family matters.

“Rix & Kay’s sports group works extensively with clients in the Sussex and Kent region to provide advice on commercial, employment, real estate and governance issues.”

“The firm has a great understanding of sport, dealing with organisations of all sizes. They are committed to the local area and are a leading force in helping sports help towards disabilities, working in cooperation with leading organisations like Albion in the Community, the Sussex Cricket Foundation and others.”
