I am a huge fan of making my life easier. Life can be so hectic. We are always juggling work, family and other commitments.
A few months ago, I was chatting to Tessa at Club Hub UK. She was gathering support for the launch of her new app. If you didn’t read the original post, you can check it out here.
I loved the potential for this new service at the time.
I thought it would be fun to revisit this now, after its official launch.
What is Club Hub UK?
The application is a searchable database of children’s clubs, activities, leisure centres, libraries and attractions. The aim is to get children out of the house.
The application is available on iPhone and Android devices. It is free to download – with an ad-free version also available.
Users can search by interests, ages and locations. The search results appear quickly.
The results are ordered geographically. Therefore, enabling users to find the clubs and activities closest to home.
Sign up is free for businesses who are interested in taking part.
There is truly no need to be bored with this at your fingertips.
Who Is Tessa?
Tessa is a 23-year-old former musical theatre student. She created Club Hub UK after starting her own children’s drama group, only to find there were no free options to advertise locally.
With help from start-up aggregator Ideas Britain, she was able to develop her idea. Then she was entered into their #InSport competition and was thrilled to take second place.
The award drew the attention of Marcus Isman-Egal (Managing Partner of Red Everywhere), Menno Marien (Founder of CROSSMO) and Kathleen Saxton (Founder and CEO of the Lighthouse Company). They subsequently helped her convert her idea into an app that parents and clubs can use.
I stand by my original post with regards to the premise of this application. Club Hub UK is a fantastic idea. It is one that will help parents nationwide
The display when you go into the app is fun and easy on the eye. The app has play school fonts – this is important for getting little ones interested.
There is a wide range of options under the child’s interest section. I loved that you could choose ‘all types’ if you were not sure what you were looking for. Alternatively, if you were looking for something more specific – ie arts and crafts – you can narrow down the search easily. I also liked that the application targets age appropriate activities.
The search results provide the basic details – name, type of activity, price and distance from your location:
If you are interested in knowing more, then you can select the activity. There you can find a more detailed synopsis of the activity, contact details and website details.
The application also offers latest news for you to browse. These were on a variety of topics, including news on clubs and more information articles like ‘why are pre-school classes so important?”
Overall, I would highly recommend getting this app.
After all, what have you got to lose?
It is free and it could save you from being bored during October break!
