Workshop: Addressing The Physical Activity Information Gap Event

Monday 6th January 2020

So why is it so much easier to book a hotel room than a badminton court?


With national investment from Sport England into ‘Open Active’, this presents a fantastic opportunity to make our local physical activity offer relevant, searchable and bookable …

SASSOT have partnered with Played and Imin to deliver a local activity finder, powered through the use of open data, we believe this is a critical step in addressing the persistent high levels of physical inactivity across the county.

To kick start this project we would welcome your attendance at our open data briefing where we will explain how open data works, the progress that Sport England have made and how we can support you to share your activity information.

Our ambition is to work with as many activity providers as possible to support them to open their activity data, allowing the information to appear in our ‘Activity Finder’. This will increase your market reach to new audience’s as well as improve the experience of local residents trying to find activity.

So whether you are a sports club, yoga instructor, walk leader, coaching company and so on, we would love for you to join us on this journey and come along to find out a little more on the 23rd January.
