Management Overview

The concept of ClubsComplete was born in 2007 when Kerry Barsby founded the company, and after much consideration, decided on the suitable and fit for purpose company name. At the time, Kerry was volunteering in Moira Primary School in Leicestershire teaching Spanish and Dance after school. The school began to recommend her to their cluster and after the first year, Kerry was working in 20 schools.

Stacey was asked to come on board with the company in 2008 and the sisters ran the business as a partnership until 2012 with a small team of coaches helping them deliver breakfast, lunchtime, after school and holiday clubs to local children. An office was acquired at Ibstock Business Centre to cater for the company’s administration and storage needs.

In 2012, Amelia Gillespie & Emma Black joined the team and the company began to offer services to schools further afield as well as birthday parties and private tuition. In 2013, Rachel Stapleford joined the rapidly expanding team as the first sales executive. Also in 2013, the company opened in Spain and still actively operates overseas.

In 2016, the company moved premises to a more central location in Ashby-de-la-Zouch so they had easier access to the M1, M42 and train stations due to the ever growing need to travel.

Now, we employ over 100+ people and operate 212 clubs per week, taking care of and coaching 4,242 children per week!
