Top sports facilities are now only a tap of a touch screen away as the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) Sports Centre joins the MyLocalPitch app.

MyLocalPitch allows people to find their nearest pitches and courts using an interactive map and, after proving successful in London, Greater Manchester and Dublin, it is now widening its services.

Co-founder Jamie Foale said: “Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) is one of the best multi-sports facilities on the south coast and we’re thrilled to kick-off our partnership as we continue our UK expansion.”

The BACA Sports Centre offers facilities for 13 different sports, including football, badminton, tennis, netball, basketball and squash, and is available to hire for a variety of events.

Mr Foale added: “We pride ourselves on making sport simple and bringing BACA’s booking process online means local people get easier access to play more sports.”

The app will allow the school to generate additional revenue whilst getting the most out of its services.

Bob Speight, principal at BACA, said: “BACA’s partnership with MyLocalPitch will allow our excellent facilities to be open to the public more often.

“With their website and booking system it is easy to make a booking, whether you are looking to use our sports facilities or to use a classroom outside of school hours.”
