This Spring has been an exciting few months for PledgeSports. We have gone live and have worked with an amazing bunch of talented athletes. We saw massive success with tennis star James Cluskey. He wowed us all by achieving 130.8% of his funding goal. Cluskey is in fact the first male tennis player to be successfully crowdfunded!
Fellow tennis ace, Amy Bowtell also smashed her campaign by raising €13,765, almost €4,000 over her target goal. This is a massive achievement and we couldn’t be prouder. Not only did members of the public get behind Amy’s campaign but corporate sponsors too. One of these sponsors, Irish online travel company GoHop.ie really helped to share and publicise her campaign. Only 10 days ago Amy won her second ever singles title at an ITF Pro Tournament in Egypt, earning her a well deserved cheque for 10K! Seeing results like this really makes our jobs worth while. Well done Amy!
We also took PledgeSports to the UK in April. This was the right move having had such success in Ireland. Our first group of UK athletes are a great bunch and are from an array of sporting pursuits. From bobsleighing to windsurfing, and everything in between, there is something to appeal to every sports fan out there. Browse through our UK athletes here!
