A new website is giving Brits the chance to follow in the Olympic footsteps of stars such as athletes Dame Kelly Holmes and Darren Campbell and boxer Amir Khan by helping them get in touch with their closest sports club.

SportsBase.co.uk lists Tonbridge Athletics Club, the club joined by gold medal winning Dame Kelly Holmes when she was just 12, amongst another 35,000 clubs covering over 70 sports throughout the UK. Bury Amateur Boxing Club, the Manchester-based club that helped Amir Khan reach boxing fame is one of the hundreds of boxing clubs available through the free online service.

SportsBase is an ever growing guide to sports clubs, sporting venues and health and fitness centres in the UK and has already helped thousands of people in the UK find a local sport club. Referred to by some as the UK’s “Google of Sport” it covers high profile sports such as tennis, cricket and rugby, extreme sports such as wakeboarding, and even obscure sporting activities – like dragon boat racing and tug of war!

This authoritative sporting website is the brainchild of Nick Kenton and Robert Taub, two 23-year-old sports-mad business graduates from north London. The idea behind SportsBase came as a result of their own frustration in getting in contact with their own local sports clubs.

Co-founders Nick Kenton and Robert Taub say: “While everyone remembers the nation’s sporting heroes like Dame Kelly Holmes, it is sometimes easy to forget that for many of our athletes it was their local sporting club that put them onto the road to excellence. With just six years to go till we have the Olympics in London we hope that SportsBase will play a role in helping find some of our future sports stars.”

“The launch of SportsBase.co.uk means that anyone who wants to take up a sport will be able to find a club, venue or organisation that is right for them,” they say.

For those who think that six years may not be enough time to become an Olympic athlete, Sportsbase.co.uk founders Nick and Rob remind everyone that 24-year-old Shelley Rudman, who won the silver medal for Great Britain in Bob Skeleton at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Turin, first tried the sport only five years earlier.

“It is never too late to take up a sport,” say Nick and Rob. “Whether you are doing it to seek an Olympic medal, or just for your own personal fitness and well-being.”
