SportsTech Startups to Aid The Roadmap Out of Lockdown

We have highlighted five exciting SportsTech startups within our community that aim to make managing and finding facilities and sessions easier out of lockdown. 

As COVID restrictions continue to lift and people’s confidence increase, more in-person and group sessions will be taking place and more people are likely to engage.

Therefore, providers and organisers of physical activity that maximise tech products on the market are likely to make it easier and simpler for users to take part, consequently increasing engagement from existing and new customers.
