What are your current skills? Is there any budget to get in a professional?

If your forced to go it alone the bare minimum you should consider learning is html, css and a little photoshop. I can recommend some books or you could join my online training course.

If it’s a not-for-profit site and you just don’t have the time or the inclination to learn web design skills PM me and I can get one of my apprentices to put something together for you as part of their training.

You could also check out sites like Template Monster and just buy and modify a design you like.

I helped a friend once with a website but the problem was the search engines had a problem finding it. And as for budgets the sports club’s budget is not big enough to hire a professional. Thanks for the recommendation on Template Monster I will check it out. I want to learn anyway how to build websites, I’ll see it as a learning curve. What books do you recommend and what’s your website’s name?

There are also other websites that provide good designs for free.
Such as Free CSS Templates and Styleshout.

Those designs are all licensed under Creative Commons, so you’re allowed to take them and use them free.

I recommend CSS mastery

but it’s not for the complete beginner and you will need to learn html first. Book from sitepoint or friendsof ed are usually good. O’reilly are excellent but bit of a stale read and generally best for reference rather than learning from scratch. SAMS even does a book that claims to teach HTML in 24hrs.

@archaeopteryx – good links, I downloaded one to check and the code was good too.
