Cape Town-based digital platform provider, PT SportSuite, has announced a new partnership with the Bristol Sport Foundation in the UK.
The app has just gone live with the aim of providing opportunities for families to access exclusive digital content to get active, taught by coaches from the Bristol Sport group, in their very own back garden.
PT SportSuite has previously developed mobile apps for Bristol City, the Bristol Bears and the Bristol Flyers in the past nine months.
“Bringing sport and physical activity to the front rooms and gardens of the UK in these difficult times is the least we can do," says PT SportSuite CEO Rich Cheary. "We are helping the Bristol Sport Foundation to keep its community active and the feedback we’ve had so far has been fantastic. The platform allows families to engage with others taking part and means that they are making friends while keeping fit.”
The Bristol Sport Foundation works with communities in the greater Bristol area to deliver interventions that help people to live active, healthy and happy lives. The aim is not only to help children and young people to be more active, but also to grow their confidence and aspirations.
PT SportSuite’s digital tools will allow the Bristol Sport Foundation to deliver its coaching programmes straight to smartphones in an online community, allowing people to keep healthy and connect with each other in a time of isolation. It will also ensure that the Bristol Sport Foundation has the tools to collect, create and store more content than ever before.
