Pickup Sports is an idea using mobile and web platform to crowd source local pickup games activities.
Potential Users: People who wants to find and play pickup games in their neighborhood. Games such as basketball, football, running partner, hiking, etc. The app is build for those who wants to Trim the Fat or wants to stay healthy.
How will it work: Users can go visit the website at http://www.ipickupsports.com or download “Pickup Sports” on iPhone, Android and WebOS. From these entry points users will be able to find local activities around their area. After posting your game, you can easily use facebook and twitter to share with your friends. This makes the application not only social on the web, but social in the real world as well.
Benefits: Pickup Sports makes finding healthy activities fun and easy, and these physical activities provides mental, physical and social benefits to the users. Pickup Sports also provides an alternative for the schools who have low budget for their physical education.
Sustain: Pickup Sports will have premium services for trainers and coaches, this will provide additional revenue for the company to sustain itself.
How am I interested in it: I am a very active person, and it is extremely hard to find games after college. Even after weeks of planning, people still manage to bail out at the last minute. So after frustrating finding basketball games, I decided to make an app that allows users to post and find games in their local neighborhood.
