“Playwaze recognised the timescales HSP were working to and understand the landscape of Active Partnerships. Their ability to be agile with respect to issues that we experienced meant that we could communicate progress with partners in a language that everyone understood.“

“The Playwaze Challenges feature has enabled us to realise that there was potential to capture a greater group of children and young people across the county by delivering virtually, and consequently shift focus towards not only competition but participation aspects and access for all too”.

“We are currently using Playwaze to host our Activity Finder as well as use the platform to support participation. The platform acts as an integral part of our recreational ‘No Strings’ programme with the ability for us to become close to this audience, understanding their frequency of play and wider playing patterns.
Playwaze are very receptive to feedback and then manage expectations around what can be done and how this can be managed within their development schedule. Whenever we are looking for a solution to a problem, I am confident about approaching Playwaze to see if there is a feature that can be utilised. We have a very positive relationship with Playwaze and would see them as a valued partner to help us achieve our objectives.”

“BWB has been using Playwaze for two full seasons for its club and individual memberships, Club Management, Development Programmes, and GBR Performance Programme, Account Holders (fans, parents, etc.), Courses and Volunteering, Leagues and Competitions, and Communication.
Playwaze allows for a more modern approach to managing our sport both from a BWB and user perspective. The platform also allows for a blended approach, with functions available for clubs to manage memberships, run sessions and log registers, fixtures, payments and communication, all with more social aspects and user-led data input. Now it is embedded, the clubs and members are learning how to make the most of the functions on there and not just use it to administer the basics.”

“In a normal world, BUCS use Playwaze to deliver our sport programmes, including yearly league programmes, tournaments/knockouts and over 100 events in over 30 sports. However, during the pandemic, we have also used Playwaze to deliver virtual competition and challenges to keep participants engaged and active.
Playwaze have been incredibly agile, especially over the last 12 months, supporting the delivery of virtual activity. It is not an exaggeration to say that without their support we would not have been able to deliver anything during the pandemic. Playwaze’s agility is a key component for the success of the platform.”

“We’re a squash club of almost 100 members and started using Playwaze primarily for our 12 box leagues. Having seen how well the software works with the leagues, we’ve introduced two ladders and will be using it for our club tournament in June.
As well as a fantastic product, the support is amazing: any questions that we’ve had as new users have been answered within 12 hours – including at weekends; any niggles have been fixed within days; suggestions are always considered and often taken on board.
Having looked at quite a few options for online club admin systems I’ve no hesitation in recommending Playwaze above all the rest”
Redhill Squash Club
“We are just about to complete our first season using Playwaze. I can say hand on heart it has been an excellent experience. The support from Playwaze has been exceptional, as team captains have struggled with one or two issues, the support team has handheld them.
If you are looking for a software solution to run a league then look no further. Ten-star rating for these guys.”
East Cheshire Tennis Association
“From the moment of hearing about Playwaze I felt we were onto something good. The team are highly professional and supportive in helping us to make finding an activity in Westminster as easy as booking a holiday.”
Head of Physical Activity, Leisure & Sport
Active Westminster (Westminster City Council)
“We have been able to support our clubs return to play using the platform and provide the ability to track and trace as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are starting to understand our recreational audience through our coordinators using the platform to record participation and hope to grow this post Covid when we really drive this activity.”
Badminton England (Clubs)
“We have worked with Playwaze to develop a safe and exciting environment for Mintridge’s youth mentoring programmes, which has been and continues to be a great experience. The Playwaze team have offered a high level of service from the very beginning, delivering our bespoke concepts on a number of occasions. A particular highlight is the development of Progress Pathways which will allow school staff and club coaches to measure their individual goals and outcomes in a much more structured way. We are looking forward to a continued, growing partnership.”
Founder and Managing Director
“We use Playwaze to deliver our sport programmes, including yearly league programmes, tournaments/knockouts and over 100 events in over 30 sports. Playwaze is our biggest data capture tool, enabling us to understand our audiences and speak to them directly – something we were not able to do until we started working with Playwaze.
As a team, Playwaze were chosen as their passion and vision for sport met ours. Each member of their team has a great level of understanding for a wide variety of sport, and the intricacies that go along with it. They exceeded our expectations by delivering a complex product which is fit for use, despite changing specifications from our side. They offered support to us through every aspect of the build process to ensure that each part of the system met our demands; Playwaze have been incredibly agile.”
