British Wheelchair Basketball

A game changing digital solution for British Wheelchair Basketball that brings the sport together into one digital space – clubs, competitions, memberships, licences, courses, volunteering and more. 

The Scenario

British Wheelchair Basketball’s digital systems for its memberships, league management and website were life expired. They no longer met the expectations of British Wheelchair Basketball’s funding partners and members or support the sustainable commercial and participation growth of the organisation.

British Wheelchair Basketball sought a partner to implement game changing digital systems to enable the sport to grow and thrive. The project covered a new website, a new memberships and licencing system, a competitions management solution, and solution for the delivery of courses, camps, volunteering and other participation campaigns.

British Wheelchair Basketball were not simply looking for a solution to meet the administrative needs of the organisation. Instead they needed the solution to service the sport as a whole, and so it also needed to provide beneficial solutions and services to the organisation's member clubs.

How we helped

Playwaze, in partnership with partner AdoMedia, provided a new WordPress-powered website that was fully mobile responsive and integrated with the Playwaze platform. The website fully represents British Wheelchair Basketball's strong brand identity, while also providing easy user journeys to join as a member, find a club or session and learn more about the sport.

Behind the new British Wheelchair Basketball website, Playwaze provided an engine room from which BWB could manage its memberships, competitions, courses and volunteering opportunities. To compliment this, Playwaze also delivered the first ever British Wheelchair Basketball app on IOS and Android, allowing BWB members and spectators to buy memberships, follow and play in competitions and join clubs on their phone.

To meet British Wheelchair Basketball's ambitious aim to provide their new solution as a digital service to its members, Playwaze also enabled every member club of the organisation to process their own memberships, run their own sessions, and distribute their own news to their members, along with an automated profile page on the BWB website using the content they create within the new system - game changing.
