The Professional Darts Players Association (PDPA) is an organisation with the primary objective of safeguarding the interests of professional darts players. Dedicated to offering its members an authentic voice and a range of benefits, the PDPA strives to help members pursue their ambitions in the professional darts arena while also providing valuable health and well-being support.
The PDPA approached us with the need for a new and improved website. One that would serve as a vital hub, offering their members a centralised platform for accessing important information about upcoming events and player rankings. Additionally, it would foster an authentic sense of community among members of the darts players community, providing support for a range of issues including mental health, financial and careers support.
We conducted thorough User Experience (UX) research on their current website, considering the clients' goals. Our analysis aimed to identify the pain points experienced by members, assess the current successful elements, and areas in need of improvement. This extensive research involved a collaborative stakeholder session, where we delved into the client's priorities and primary objectives. To gather valuable insights from the user's perspective, we distributed a survey among members.
The results highlighted a significant emphasis on mobile-first design, considering that the majority of members exclusively access the website through mobile devices. Recognising this trend, our focus was on ensuring that information is easily accessible, and navigation is seamless, ultimately prioritising an optimal user experience.
Our collaboration with the Professional Darts Players Association has resulted in a dynamic and efficient website that significantly enhances the online experience for its members. The in-depth UX research paved the way for a user-friendly design, prioritising clarity and easy navigation. The incorporation of high-quality photography and the innovative parallax header successfully convey the passion and diversity within the PDPA community. Plus, the integration of a real-time API not only ensures players have immediate access to the latest information but also streamlines administrative processes, saving time and resources.
The outcome is a seamlessly maintained platform built with Craft CMS, that reflects the association's commitment to excellence and serves as a central hub for the vibrant world of professional darts.
Since we decided to work with the local team at H&H Reeds on our new website concept, we cannot fault any communication, planning, meetings and most of all the end product.
Our new mobile phone website is not just a great look but easy to navigate, very informative and the current tech shows our members and fans everything they need to know.
We got exactly what we had planned and wanted as they listened, understood and developed with us from its inception all through to the final stage when we launched, and the professional standard remained throughout.
If we had any issues or problems along the way, these were sorted out quickly and proficiently. We look forward to working with them as our preferred website team for the years to come.
