"Sportmeets is a meeting facilitation service specifically targeted at recreational
sports. Shifting the effort from organizing to participating, Sportmeets removes
the barriers to arranging sport events, while also helping you find suitable people
to play with and engage with socially wherever you live"
Sportmeets is solving a problem that recreational sport participants face when organizing
games and matches - they get overwhelmed by the amount of work required to organize
even a single session. Organizers need to spend hours making sure that people turn
up, everyone is kept up to date and they get paid for the venue booking afterwards.
Sportmeets allows any recreational player to organize a group of people with shared
sporting interests. Creating an event takes a minute. People get notified instantly
and can RSVP via their preferred method - be it SMS, email, Facebook or Twitter.
The competitive spirit gets going by recording game results and publishing them
to social streams as well as facilitating the organization of ranked sports ladders.
All of this saves the organizers and members hours every month.
Sportmeets created a fully-fledged product from scratch and launched it in public
including undertaking a complete branding makeover of their initial proposal. It
is currently in a public beta stage while new features are added regularly and new
users sign up at increasing rates. Sportmeets is targeting students and working
urbanites who play either group or individual sports, initially focusing on the
UK and following that the whole of EU.
Sportmeets has made a goal of becoming the best sports events organizer service
effortlessly bringing many people together for sports and fun.

volleyball team-mates who met at Glasgow University over 5 years ago. Miro is the
leader and technical mind behind Sportmeets while Peter works on the biz dev.
