Welcome to Dorkville
During a conversation between Carl Peach and Steve Bunyan, Carl, (a sports fanatic), suggested to Steve, (an internet weirdo), that there was a huge hole in the market for a sports blog written from the perspective of crazy fans rather than paid journalists. Steve agreed, and the result was the birth of their love child, Dork Sport. We hope you love it as much as we do.
Dork and Co-Founder
Carl Peach is possibly the world’s biggest sports fan. There are some who claim it’s because he prefers sport to other people, but who knows. We do know he’s a qualified cricket umpire and rumours abound that perhaps his hair is fake!
Geek and Co-Founder
Steve Bunyan is a web wizard and internet entrepreneur. He is responsible for all of Dork Sport’s bells, whistles and general ubergeekery. Steve likes Formula One racing, but he doesn’t like vegetables.
Sophie Peach is responsible for social media stuff. She is a vegetarian and likes animals. Her biggest claim to sporting fame is that she cleans the pavilion at Weekley and Warkton Cricket Club.
For many of us sport and play are firmly linked with childhood. Through competitive sports and games we learn a value system that includes fair play, team work and a passion for life. The lessons we learn from sporting pastimes shape our adult lives. Sport is everywhere. It is an inextricable part of our popular culture. At Dork Sport we want to celebrate all things sport with a youthful exuberance that belies our own advancing years. Sports are wonderful. They are pointless yet beguiling.
They pervade our modern lives. They are engaging, compelling, spontaneous and deliciously unpredictable, and that is why they are so appealing. Behind every sporting encounter are real people with human emotions and stories. At Dork Sport we aim to share those stories, marvel in the drama as it unfolds and revel in the beauty of its execution. Sport is huge. There are many inspirational stories to be told.
Dork Sport is a platform for sharing worldwide stories of sporting achievement and excellence. We are real people who share your passion for sport. We welcome contributions from writers everywhere as we grow the Dork Sport team and fill these pages with compelling content about the sports you play, watch and love. Our mission at Dork Sport is to become the world’s premier online resource for sporting content.
