Many amateur sports clubs are prevented from registering as charities as the promotion of sport itself is not a defined charitable purpose. If the club can demonstrate, for instance, that it exists to provide publicly available sports facilities for healthy recreation, or to advance the physical education of young people, it may qualify as a charity. However, the Charity Commission has indicated clubs involved in certain sports, such as angling and snooker, can never meet the criteria for charitable status.
