ENAS is the European Network of Academic Sports Services. The Network aims to foster the development of “sport for all” in Higher Education

The purpose of ENAS is :

• to develop communication between Academic Sport Services 
• to exchange ideas and experiences of different countries in the field of recreation, health, culture and physical education 
• to encourage the mobility of professionals (people involved in sport services) and students 
• to promote recognition of the Academic Sport Services in Europe 
Every year ENAS organises a conference, which non-members can also take part in. ENAS membership is open to any higher education Sport Service in Europe upon payment of a 250 Euro annual membership fee.

During the annual conference ENAS members and participants will work with experts from all over Europe in areas including :

• structure and organization of Academic Sport Services and national University Sport Federations (analysis, research, development)
• topics referring to developments at academic institutions and Academic Sports Services in Europe
• evaluation and research on Academic Sports Services
• brand management
• finances of Academic Sports Services
• sport facilities (concepts, finances, developments)
• University Sports and politics
• cultural aspects of University Sports
• management methods and several other topics based on the desires and needs of Academic Sport Services 

The UK contact for ENAS is Bill Thompson, member of ENAS Executive Committee & Head of Sport and Leisure, City University London
