Private Sector

Characteristics: - Privately owned registered companies
                        - Must operate and survive in open market/make a profit/compete
                        - Funds from membership fees

Goals: - Aims to make a profit for the owner
           - Can cater for a more exclusive and wealthier clientele

Advantages: - It can react quickly to meet a demand as demonstrated by market research
                   - Can restrict membership so that all those that use a facility do so unhindered by too many other people being there at the same time
                   - Can meet individual needs

Disadvantages: - Costs of joining the club and fees for using the facility are realatively high and therefore out of reach of those with insufficient income
                       - Restriction on numbers will mean some people are unable to join
                       - Degree of social exclusivity against certain groups in society
