What is Totally Sporty?
Totally Sporty is a new site dedicated to Londoners, who are looking to make more from their leisure time. By registering on the site you will be able to find a sport partner near you, whether you are looking for a casual game of tennis or squash, take up a new sport together, find someone to train with for an event or even someone to cycle to work with. There are over 85 sports to choose from and when registering you can specify what level you are and whether you are interested in individual or team sports.
The site also allows you to set up a sports team, so if you are looking to play some basketball down in your local park, or play a mixed game of hockey, you can actively find other interested players.
Totally Sporty also contains the most comprehensive and up-to-date directory of sport clubs and venues in the London area, ideal if you are looking to join your local tennis, horse riding, running, salsa or football club. There are over 140 swimming clubs/venues, 190 gyms and leisure centres, 290 tennis locations, and more than 75 golf clubs to choose from. Simply by inputting your postcode, you see a detailed description of the club you are interested in, find out the exact distance, and see on a map how to get there!
Every few months we'll feature a new sport and give you all the information you'll need to know about taking part. We'll help answer all your questions about getting started, what benefits you can expect, what equipment you'll need, where you can participate and how to get more info. In the Summer months, we'll be focusing on the popular sports like tennis, sailing, swimming and golf; in Autumn and Winter we'll show case running, netball, indoor climbing, squash and get you in the mood for some skiing and snowboarding in the mountains.
Why Totally Sporty?
Even though London has a thriving, large population and there are hundreds of parks and recreational areas around the city, it can be surprisingly difficult to meet new people who share an interest in sport. The vision for Totally Sporty is to provide an easy and effective way for individuals to be active in London, find and engage with new people and make more from their leisure time.
