Table Tennis Wales CEO Owen Rodgers praises WSA Finance Plus

In April 2022, the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) launched Finance Plus – one of three Membership Plus packages that currently exist – on top of standard membership benefits. 

The bolt-on package provides confidential, professional hands-on bookkeeping service and support, designed for small to medium-sized member organisations looking for support with financial compliance.  

Within the offer will include annual reviews of finance compliance against the Sport Wales capability framework and the preparation of monthly management accounts, inclusive of a financial summary report for board meetings. 

Since its release, seven WSA members have utilised the service, one of which is Table Tennis Wales, who took up the option in January 2023. 

“We have been using Finance Plus for eight months now,” explained the organisation’s CEO Owen Rodgers, “and it has made a huge difference.”  

Finance Plus is headed and delivered by the WSA’s Finance Officer Ehtasham Janjua, whose service Rodgers describes as “outstanding”. 

“He is really quick at responding and his attention to detail is first class.  

“He’s producing monthly management reports and we are able to resolve any issues very quickly; his support means we have an efficient way of paying invoices; we’re developing a system for uploading invoices as well as a sound record-keeping system; and we can now delegate financial responsibility to team members,” Rodgers commented. 

He concluded by stating he “would recommend Finance Plus to other organisations in sport and leisure. 

“The WSA and Ehtasham know how National Governing Bodies’ finance systems work in relation to Sport Wales grants and all necessary frameworks. Their support has been amazing!” 

The WSA doesn’t just cover finance in its Membership Plus initiative! 

April 2022 also saw the launch of Advocacy Plus, before Content & Comms Plus was then released in November of the same year. Learn more about each package by visiting our dedicated Membership Plus page through the button above!
