Our vision is to bring together the players, coaches, clubs and venues in every community through our platform where players can connect and compete in the sport of their choice!
We are the creators of a unique app which matches both club and non-club players based on their location and playing ability.
Sportch launched on 1st March 2020 with Tennis in Essex, UK. In June we had expanded our platform to include players from London, by July 2020 we added dedicated profiles for coaches, clubs and venues and by August 2020 we’d started completely automating internal singles ladders.
How does the app work?
Through Sportch players have huge flexibility – they can move around between locations playing as often or little as they like without the fear of being penalised.
Our open ladder is unlike traditional tennis leagues which have set start and end dates in a fixed location. We’ve developed a model that allows you to come and go at any point.
Our ladder system ensures you only match with similar ability players in the location you choose... and you get the final say on who you do and don’t connect with.
We use clever technology to take care of admin like matching players, reporting results, updating rankings and tracking statistics, leaving you to focus on connecting with others, honing your skills and improving your sporting record.
The app keeps track of your personal sporting journey and gives you the flexibility of playing as often as you wish.
Through the Sportch app we transcend theoretical limitations like age, experience or physical attributes by matching adults purely based on their relative ability:
Sportch rating is the key metric we use to rank players. Ratings update after every match to reflect the result of the match-up.
Player profiles contain key information including the player’s location, coach, club or venue (if applicable). Player profiles also contain details about your opponent such as their status, availability, age, gender, nationality and their playing history. Player status identifies when players are Active, Away or Inactive. Inactive players, who haven’t been seen in a while, are automatically hidden from others so they don’t impact your ranking or playing opportunities!
Match-ups are available with local players immediately around you in the Sportch rankings. Once a match-up request has been accepted you are free to chat and agree a date, time and format for your match-up.
Match-up results are reported through the app. Once confirmed the rating of both players will immediately update to reflect the new rankings!
