Matchup: Sport Partner Nearby is a platform founded with the mission to simplify the process of organizing a sport match. All you need to do is to let the app know about your time and location preferences, and how good you are at the sport. These inputs will allow Matchup to connect you with relevant players with the same availability and levels and bringing to you your sport partner in no time.
It is not always easy to find a partner to play/practice a sport with. The sport partner you may find might also have a quite different game level, leading to an uneven, frustrating match. Matchup brings the sports network and motivation to the players through its innovative app-platform. We currently focus on racket sports (Badminton, Padel, Squash, Tennis, Ping Pong). Start by simply completing a 1-minute profile creation where you set up your sport preference. From there, you can easily let others know when and where you want to play, so they can join your sport session, or simply look through other players preference and see whether you are interested in an available match. We will then add all the players you have played with to your sport network. Why only focusing on your professional network with LinkedIn? Grow your sport network as well and have more fun!
“Having lived in several countries by now, I find it difficult to keep practicing a sport every time I move to a new country or city. I mean, you have to first grow your group of friends, then find out which one of them like to play the same sport as you and try to schedule with that friend in these busy days. And that is when it hits me: Why don’t I start the process in reverse: Why don’t I start by finding someone who play the same sport as I do, with the same level and availability, have some good time, and then become friends? That is when I realize that an app like Matchup: Sport Partner Nearby would create great benefit for users.” said Leminh, co-founder and in charge of business function at Matchup.
Matchup: Sport Partner Nearby is available worldwide for FREE in the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app currently features several languages. More sport and feature are under development.
