Sports technology competition now open for entries

31 July 2015

The Sports Technology Awards, in association with Sport England, is launching the first UK-based Hackathon for sports technology

Taking place over 25 hours on 2 and 3 October in central London, the Hackathon will see 12 teams of up to six people develop an app that encourages a specific demographic to be more physically active.

The event is free to enter and the winning team will receive a £10,000 bursary from Sport England.

Each team, with the help of mentors, will create their app with the last hour of the Hackathon seeing them present their concept to a judging panel. Three finalists will be selected with the winning team announced at the Sports Technology Awards in April 2016.

Anyone based in the UK over the age of 18 can create a team and enter but each team must include at least one woman.

For a chance to take part, register your interest here.

Applications to participate have been extended to 5pm on 14 September 2015, with successful teams having their place on the Hackathon confirmed on 18 September 2015.
