Luminii Consulting is delighted to have provided Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) support to Foresight on its recent growth capital investment into Sportlabs Technology Limited, trading as ClubSpark, the awarding-winning specialist software company serving participants, sports providers, National Governing Bodies and International Federations.

Founded in 2012 by CEO Dave Ward and CTO Nathan Flood, ClubSpark provides a comprehensive software platform which provides easy access to sports and events for participants, simple to use tools for sports providers, whilst giving National Governing Bodies and International Federations insight into participation and activity levels. The software platform allows sports providers to manage all operational activities, including resource booking, membership, CRM, competitions/tournaments, courses, holiday camps, coaching, reporting, compliance, safeguarding and website development.

Since inception, the Company has established itself as the global leader in tennis, serving three of the four Grand Slam nations, as well as the International Tennis Federation. ClubSpark has also secured flagship clients in other sports, including the ECB, England Athletics, British Triathlon and Table Tennis England.

Foresight’s investment will primarily help extend the Company’s international operations (across USA, Australia and Europe), consolidate its position as the de facto standard within tennis and explore new avenues for growth.

"It was a pleasure to support Foresight on this deal, and we wish them and ClubSpark's Management Team continued success for the future. Luminii Consulting has worked on several TMT transactions to date and this deal helps to further strengthen our leading presence within the Technology, Media and Telecom sectors." - Lushani Kodituwakku, Managing Director, Luminii Consulting

  • To date, Lushani and her team have supported me and Foresight on over 20 deals. They have consistently delivered high quality CDD reports, always against tight deadlines and to above expectation. They offer good value for money. Luminii are quick to understand our needs, offer sound advice and support on complex topics. Their ability to tailor the scope to our needs, focus on the core issues of each project and not being afraid to give their opinion backed by sound research and analysis is a great benefit to us. I would recommend their services without hesitation.
