BIRMINGHAM –PlayerSpace, a sports management platform based out of Wilmington that provides technology to YMCAs and similar organizations across the country, has been acquired by Daxko.
The Alabama-based firm said the acquisition will enhance its offerings of membership management platforms powering more than 10,000 health and wellness facilities worldwide.
The exact sum of the deal was not disclosed.
“We’re thrilled to start the new year with PlayerSpace joining the Daxko family of brands,” said Ron Lamb, Daxko’s CEO, in a statement “Our vision at Daxko is to power health and wellness throughout the world. PlayerSpace supports that vision by facilitating safe and engaging youth programming like sports, camps, swimming, gymnastics, and more to their communities.”
“We are excited to build upon a long-standing partnership and officially join the Daxko team,” added PlayerSpace’s CEO and founder Todd John. “With PlayerSpace as part of the Daxko family, we will be able to empower more YMCAs and JCCs in streamlining their membership and participant management systems, provide delightful experiences, and grow revenue.”
Founded in 2006, PlayerSpace began with one simple mission: to use technology to help people play sports more often, in more places, and with more enjoyment. Since that time, the company has expanded its sports program management solutions to include volunteer management, camp management, program marketing, and more to a growing number member-based nonprofits.
The PlayerSpace team, led by John, will continue to operate out of their offices in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.
