Alexander Charles Associates was I believe a founding member of the Sporting club and have enjoyed continuous membership since.
Through the club and its amazing facilities we have met some truly world class sporting champions, including my hero Geraint Thomas, Geoff Hurst, Daley Thomspon, Laurence Dallagio, Frank Bruno, Sam Warburton, Dame Kelly Holmes, Katherine Grainger and the list goes on!
Not only were our guests able to dine and have a personalised photo taken with the star, but we were also treated to an in-depth interview conducted by Ian Stafford, which on occasion revealed some stunning tips!
When asked about a return on investment (ROI) I am confident in saying our ROI was around thirty times, which is pretty amazing,
Ian also ran a special event for our 30th year in recruitment which was an amazing success and 100 of our clients were entertained by Tony Adams, Jason Robinson and Tracey Edwards.
An amazing club where you will meet some amazing people and by the way, have a really good time!

Being part of the sporting club has added real value to my businesses. The membership has given me the opportunity to meet some like minded people from the world of business as well as some incredible superstars of sport. I always look forward to the regular sports lunches which give me the opportunity to entertain existing and potential clients in wonderful surroundings whilst enjoying delicious food and listening to Ian chat with legends of sport such as Sir Jackie Stewart and Sir Ian McGeechan .

In this ever changing working environment the sporting clubs private memberships of various venues across the UK also gives me great flexibility on where i can work from in a very cost effective way

I cant recommend the sporting club enough

I was first introduced to Ian through two clients of mine who are also current members. One kindly invited me to a breakfast with Wayne Barnes which was thoroughly entertaining. I soon became a member myself and have enjoyed the benefits ever since.
The club lunches are a perfect way of hosting existing and potential clients, allowing everyone to engage in a relaxing atmosphere whilst listening to a sporting legend such as Sir Jackie Stewart, Sir Ian McGeechan, Martin Johnson and many more…
The membership has become an add on to my business, allowing me to meet like minded people from across London and further afield in the Club's various club lounges.
The Sporting Club gets the thumbs up from me!

As founding sponsors of the Sporting Club, we are one of their biggest fans! Ian and his team have developed the perfect formula, bringing together elite sport and business professionals. Their events are first-class and provide the rare opportunity to get up, close and personal with our sporting heroes and get great insight to the challenges and successes they have enjoyed. It has been a real privilege to discuss sprint cycling with Mark Cavendish and rugby tactics with Lewis Moody to name a couple.

Our clients have been 'wowed' at all of the events they have attended with us, further cementing our relationships with them and many have introduced their friends to Vin-X as a result. Furthermore, The Sporting Club events also offer superb opportunities for networking for Vin-X and our clients to create new business.

The 2022 Sporting Club event schedule is looking really exciting and I look forward to sharing some great occasions with our clients and the Vin-X team in the year ahead.
