A NEW interactive website that connects budding athletes and sports enthusiasts across the UK with clubs, coaches and officials in their own area has launched today.
Sport Search UK – which has been designed by Peppercorn, one of the country’s top ranked website design companies – provides an extensive and growing database of local sports clubs, officials, lessons and facilities.
Tom Bates, founder of Sport Search UK, said: “I had the idea for the site when my own local swimming club in Nottingham was having difficulty finding a new coach and was planning to advertise the post nationally. “Now other clubs in the same situation can save time and money by simply searching our site to find the most qualified candidate.”
Tom linked up with web design specialists Peppercorn to build the website having completed his business degree at Sheffield Hallam University. His ambition was to increase the number of people not just taking part in sport but joining and competing for local teams. The site covers all types of sport and contains useful information on clubs, coaches, officials, lessons and facilities.
Peppercorn’s Marcus Sen said: “Anyone interested in taking up a sport, joining a club or finding a referee or official for a game can use the site. “Many of the people who run sport in the UK are volunteers who devote their own time and energy. Sport Search UK makes it much easier for them to deal with administrative tasks and gives them more time to work with the athletes and sports stars of tomorrow.”
Club officials can use the site to contact their athletes in a convenient but safer way than using networking sites such as Facebook which many sporting bodies actively discourage due to child protection issues. Coaches can also communicate with each other to share advice and experiences.
