OUR 2010 REPORT ON THE STATE OF THE MANAGED RECREATION INDUSTRY

What's Happening in Recreation, Sports & Fitness Facilities


Health clubs completely bucked the trend, with this year's respondents reporting 62.8 percent higher revenues for fiscal 2009 than last year's respondents were projecting. That said, they are anticipating a drop in 2010 from their current average of $1.55 million to $1.53 million. (See Figure 12.)


In fiscal 2009, respondents from colleges and school districts reported increases to their operating budgets of more than 5 percent over 2008, and parks reported an increase of 3.9 percent. YMCAs, on the other hand, reported a 3.3 percent decrease in their operating budgets.

In 2010, more are anticipating relatively sharp declines in their operating budgets. Camps and schools are expecting decreases of more than 8 percent, with schools projecting an 8.5 percent decrease and camps projecting an 8.4 percent decrease. Parks and recreation agencies are anticipating a 7 percent decrease, and YMCAs are again expecting a drop, of about 5.4 percent this year. College and university respondents are expecting their operating budgets to remain fairly stable in 2010, with a slight increase of 0.5 percent. Only community recreation and sports centers were anticipating any substantial increase in 2010. They expect a rise of 4.8 percent from an operating budget of $1,160,000 in fiscal 2009 to $1,216,000 in fiscal 2010.
