How frequently does Active Places data get updated?

Active Places records are maintained via a combination of a third-party (Adetiq) who are contracted by Sport England to collect, validate, and maintain sport facility data in addition to individual facility owners and managers who have taken responsibility to self-maintain and update information on their own facility records.     

Adetiq contacts all sites on a rolling annual update cycle. This ensures most records are no more than a year old with the aim that all records that are self-maintained are no more than 18 months old. Individual facility owners and managers may update a record on a more frequent basis to reflect changes at a site.

As updates are collected, they are processed to the live database and immediately available within the Active Places Power website. Prior to 2nd November 2015 updates were made available on a weekly basis.
