About Our Site

SafeSport was formed to offer a unique reference point on playing sport safely.

Whatever the sport, there are dangers involved, but a lot of these risks can be reduced or eliminated altogether if the participants apply a healthy dose of common sense. Often people take up a sport as one of the first steps towards a fitter lifestyle only to wind up in accident and emergency or at the local GP’s surgery. Doing too much too soon is a common cause of injury, although each sport has its own unique dangers.

SafeSport examines a wide range of popular sports and explains how to reduce the risks involved. Some sports, such as archery, shooting, boxing, fencing, wrestling and trampolining carry fairly obvious dangers, while other, seemingly more genteel sports, like table tennis, lawn bowls, badminton and golf pose hidden threats.

The site has separate sections on athletics, ball sports, body building, the gym, walking and running, water sports, racquet sports, outdoor sports and sports that take place in the air, on wheels or on snow and ice. It covers a staggering range of activities, from horse riding, rock climbing and football to snowboarding, quad biking and scuba diving.

Should the worst happen, there is information on sports injuries. It looks at typical injuries and how to treat them, recovering from a sports injury and staying fit while injured.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

SafeSport was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding SafeSport and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
