Leisure-net Solutions are the leading provider of Customer Insight, Business Intelligence and Consultation services to the cultural services, active leisure and health and fitness industries.



A data rich but information poor sector. The collaborative DataHub project was launched in 2013 as an automated way for all sport, leisure and physical activity providers across the sector to securely bring their data together, align it with consistent sector data standards and then access and share business intelligence and best practice, at the point of decision. The result is that all DataHub Club members (facility operators) now have access to accurate reporting information, relative benchmarks and actionable operational solutions, based on a central and growing repository of over 150+ million facility visits. Just knowing what works best, where and when, is impacting physical activity participation and subsequent economic and social returns. As importantly, these outcomes are also now being accurately monitored and evidenced, creating a continuous cycle of improvement. A game changer brought about through sector collaboration. A number of leading sector specialists including Leisure-net and Right Directions have been brought together as DataHub Partners, and have integrated their respective platforms within the DataHub, creating a single portal that offers a comprehensive range of facility operator services, each approved by a sector representative Steering Group.

4 global's Sport Intelligence practice manages the sector sharing #DataHub project, through which they have long term data and insight partnerships with a range of governing bodies including the ASA, Badminton England and England Squash and are focussed on putting business intelligence, generated from up to date 'big data', at the heart of every facility operator's and partner's success.
