Find a Player Events Widget
Activity Search and Booking Website Widget
What we help to solve
You want to make your facilities and opportunities more available to more people, allowing customers to quickly browse what you have on offer, then book and pay instantly. This delivers an uptake in usage rate and ultimately drives more revenue.
To help you deliver that we’ll provide your current (and potential) customers with the level of technology and customer experience that they’ve come to expect from the likes of Uber, Airbnb and Justeat - a few clicks to find what you need.
In short we take the pain out of delivering a new level of service and functionality to your customers, all while driving increased revenue.
How we solve it
The Find a Player platform is the UK’s largest sports participation network, in simple terms we make it easier for people to organise, find and play sports in their local area.
Our core product is a smartphone app which connects users to their friends, other local available sports people, clubs, events and facilities around them - allowing anyone to join, create or market a sports opportunity.
In addition to our main platform we also offer several complementary tools for use by 3rd parties. Our event widget can be embedded directly onto your own website and provides the following benefits.
- Instant searching and booking of your available opportunities.
- Insight into participation in local areas
- An instant way to boost promotion and visibility of any sports opportunities you’ve created - directly onto your website .
- A full spectrum, out of the box solution which can be dropped directly onto your website without having to worry about the full technical burden of developing it yourselves.
- Layout and colour options to tailor to your existing branding
What we offer
Our event widget is built to provide a vastly improved customer experience to your customers via your own website,allowing them to instantly search, book and pay (where enabled) for the opportunities offered at your facilities.
It integrates into your existing website as simply as a Facebook or Twitter widget while still allowing for customisation of style and layout. It can be configured to your own requirements including options such as the following :
- full page or size restricted (to be embedded into an existing page)
- Preset with specific search criteria such as a sport, dates and times
- Restricted to certain opportunity providers,venues or locations.

Its a win for us, a win for you and a win for our users.
