Sporty makes it easy to create and join sports activities in your area.
Sporty is an app, currently only available on iOS devices, that helps users find friends and people nearby that want to play sports. The app makes it easy to find a group of people who are planning to meet up for a specific activity, but it also has the option to create your own event if you can’t find what you’re looking for. The app also focuses on any sport you want to play, from traditional activities like baseball or football to more adventurous activities like mountain biking or surfing. It links with Facebook, which could be a downside for some but ultimately makes the process easier and more trustworthy when meeting up with new individuals.
Each activity’s event page has a simple setup that displays the amount of people that will be attending, the time and location, as well as any messages from attendees or the host. There’s even a chat box for Sporty users to discuss details about the meet-up or talk about any specifics for the event. There’s also the option for users to invite more people, to ensure that there are enough members to get a game going. It can be difficult to find a group of people interested in playing the same sport as you or to find enough people for a pick-up game in your local area, so Sporty offers a great opportunity to meet new people while engaging in an activity that you enjoy.
