Abstract: Research over the past 20 years has suggested that the role of women in British sports governance is limited and may even be decreasing. A study by White and Brackenridge, published in this journal in 1985, provided convincing evidence that women had little influence at the top level of sports management and administration and predicted that there was little chance of improvement. That view has been maintained ever since but with little empirical evidence to support it. The present pilot study, based on contact with a range of organizations, suggests that the overall situation is improving, particularly amongst newer authorities and commercial clubs. Preliminary findings indicate that women have in fact been appointed in increasing numbers to senior jobs in sports governance.
