What we do

Our goal is to make data on what, where and when physical activity sessions happen openly available.

Stewarded by the Open Data Institute (ODI), we’re a growing community of sport and physical activity organisations and individuals. We’re working collaboratively as a sector to open up data about physical activity opportunities. From leisure operators to national governing bodies, local sports clubs to event providers, walking groups to fitness instructors, the ODI is helping organisations use opportunity data to build interesting products, tools and experiences for consumers.

What is Open Data?

Open data is data that anyone can access, use or share. Simple as that. When big companies or governments release non-personal data, it enables small businesses, citizens and researchers to develop useful resources, which make crucial improvements to their communities and markets.
