How can we encourage active lifestyles in Britain?

OpenPlay - Find and book sports facilities & Activities online

Park sports noticeboards are typically well hidden and out-of-date. Activity organisers usually have to produce expensive flyers and hope that people see them. Most park facilities cannot be booked online, you have to call and often are left frustrated. There's a better way - think online noticeboard for parks, updated in real-time so that users can easily book the facilities and activities online. Examples include tennis courts, bowling greens and football pitches. Existing activities and bookings could also be opened up. How about a kick around needing more players or someone wanting to join in a session in the cricket nets or tennis courts? It all starts from the online booking for the sports facilities as a way to break down barriers to participation.
