The Sports Room

Website Design and Build

The Sports Room

This website was built for The Sports Room a sports shop based in Wicklow Town.  The shop’s owner Ciara Kavanagh has a background in marketing and had been known to design and build a website or 2 herself before opening the shop.   As a result of Ciara’s previous work experiences she had a very strong vision for how the website needed to look and operate and here at Ridge Design I was delighted to help her achieve this.  Ciara was very experienced building websites using html and css but had no experience with WordPress.


This website was built in 2015 and ever since then it has been very regularly updated by Ciara, the largest of these updates being the addition of a shop to the website.  Marketing campaigns are centred around interaction with the website and all newsletters sent out to clients are about driving new business to the website and the shop.  It was a pleasure to help Ciara with setting up the website and she has expanded it greatly herself over the last 2 years.


The website is primarily a brochure website for the shop. The owner’s of The Sports Room have a vision of their shop being at the centre of a sporting community so the website needs to perform well as an arena for hints, tips and advice as well as an advertisement for the shop. The website was built using WordPress because of it’s excellent blogging and page building facilities.
