Sportmeets gives the modern athlete an easy way to schedule and organize a sporting event. Sportmeets is intended for the everyday user who wants to keep up with their favorite activities. The tools found make it easy to bring the entire team together and keep them updated on the next upcoming sporting event. Today’s busy lifestyle can make it extremely difficult to plan recreational activities so that everyone can attend. Sport Meets helps eliminate some of the headache that can come with organizing an event that involves scheduling around the commitments of others.
Sportmeets went public in May of 2009 when its beta was released. The site, designed by a pair of Slovak friends, Peter and Miro, were sports enthusiasts. They met during their time at the University of Glasgow, where they ran the university volleyball club while participating in other school sports. Through their experiences, the pair learned that organizing a sporting event takes a lot of time and effort. Communication can create a huge problem, along with cancellations and pitch booking fees. Sports Meet was created to help grassroots sport event organizers find a cost effective solution that makes it much easier to plan.
Sportmeets is unique because it is an organizational tool that is entirely focused on sports. The local event organizer can easily access Sportmeets tools and reduce the likeliness for miscommunication and scheduling problems. The site is easily accessible and caters to the grassroots sport event.
Sportmeets presents a sleek logo and attractive site design. The color scheme features soft blue and vibrant greens that create an appealing contrast and help highlight important aspects of the site. The menus are overall well organized and laid out with plenty of open space. Sportmeets does not contain any annoying banners or advertisements. Instead users can see relevant information in a way that is eye-catching and easy to navigate, even for a brand new visitor.
Sportmeets was intended to not only be a helpful tool, but an inexpensive one. Users can create an account and access Sport Meets features at no cost. There is currently no premium account listed on the site. Sportmeets does not give any indication as to whether this will change in the future.
Anyone given the task of organizing a local sporting event can get plenty of use out of Sportmeets. The site is free and access to all functions is included. All the user has to do is create an account and begin managing their next event. That means anyone, including groups and school organizers, can easily access Sportmeets and begin benefitting from the many organizational tools the site currently offers.
