Free service launched to support local clubs
Melton Mowbray Business Clubz, launches free, easy to use service to support local clubs with live and on demand sessions.
South Notts and Trent Shotokan Karate Club had to cancel all their 5 weekly classes following the Government’s advice. They were worried no classes for possibly months would result in losing even their most loyal members. Luckily the club’s Chief Instructor, Rob Manning along with fellow Karate club instructor and Clubz CEO Myles Ponsonby were able to come up with the answer, a free platform to enable clubs to run their sessions online.
Rob was able to deliver his first online class successfully on Sunday morning and is now planning on a full online class schedule. He is also looking at starting a free 3-month online course for complete beginners. Rob added, “This is fantastic and allows us to continue delivering classes to keep our members fit, stimulated and engaged with the club. The situation is deeply concerning for us all and online tools like this are now vital to allow us all to stay connected and positive.”
Myles added, “The current situation we find ourselves in is unprecedented and I understand how this would be causing great concern around keeping clubs alive, so that when the situation improves and it is safe to run face to face and group sessions, their members would have a club to return to. As soon as this situation arose, I looked at what we could offer and immediately tasked the development team to create an easy to use facility to deliver sessions remotely to their club members. I am pleased to say that they have worked tirelessly and what they have added in the last week will allow them to deliver live or on demand classes or sessions for their members, but also importantly, to allow clubs to charge members for accessing these classes if they wish.”
Keep Calm and Stay Active
