The idea behind this site is to give some information on less mainstream sport in South Africa and help direct people on where, how and what is needed to start.

If you are looking to get into a new sport, I hope you will be at least pointed in the right direction. If the site can help you find a club, equipment supplier, some interesting updates or some events to participate in, then it is worth doing.

Currently these sport codes have been added: Archery, Badminton, Cycling, Paintball and Rock climbing. I want to add as much detail about these sport types as possible and continue expanding the site with new sport codes. Most of the sport codes covered in this site are individual sports, but there will be a few team sports as well.
