Bespoke sports organisation and discovery platforms
SportStarta’s goal is simple: more people playing and enjoying the benefits of sport, thereby improving their health, fitness and happiness. We do this by removing organisational and cost barriers, adding flexibility and a social element. SportStarta allows individuals, teams, clubs and businesses to connect easily, ensure there are enough players by crowdsourcing through the wider network, arrange games at existing local free spaces and paid facilities, and spread any costs across players.
What we help to solve
Organisational barriers to playing team sports, both at a personal and enterprise level.
How we solve it
SportStarta creates websites that combine elements of social networking with geo-location allowing users to organise and find sports and activities in their local area. This includes both free games in public spaces or at paid-for facilities. Activity organisers, who may be private users, sports associations, or clubs set the sport, time, location and standard. Participants may accept invitations to games that have been created by friends, coaches or organisations they follow (and subsequently invite their friends) and can also join ‘open’ games in their area. Games are then filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
What we offer
We have our own user-facing website for sports players and organisers to connect. We also offer a white-labelling service for companies, councils and sporting organisations to co-ordinate games and players.
