Can grassroots sport recover after the pandemic? Lords ask journalists
The House of Lords Select Committee on a National Plan for Sport and Recreation will hold two evidence sessions with leading sports journalists to discuss issues including the effect of COVID-19 on community sport, and whether sports bodies and elite sport are doing enough to support sport at the grassroots. The sessions will also cover diversity and inclusion in sport, sport coverage and sports journalism, the performance of Sport England and the Government in supporting people to be more active.
Possible questions include:
- What impact has the pandemic had on the sport sector? What are the medium to long-term implications of this impact?
- Do you think elite sports and sports governing bodies do enough to support grassroots sport?
- What is being done to improve the diversity of coverage in sport and diversity of the workforce covering sport?
- What is the role of the media and journalists in sport and recreation?
