Who are we
We are the creators of a unique app providing competition for players who are matched based on their playing ability.
Our mission 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.
Our vision is to build a community where incredible competition is stimulated by people, powered by technology, and open to everyone.
How does it work
Through Sportch players have huge flexibility – they can play as often or little as they like without the fear of being penalised.
Our open competition is unlike traditional tennis leagues which have set start and end dates or formats. We’ve developed a model that allows you to come and go at any point and play on your terms.
Our system ensures you match with similar ability players 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 players purely based on their relative ability:
The 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, recent results and playing statistics. Player status identifies when players are Active, Unavailable or Inactive. Inactive players are automatically hidden so they don’t impact your ranking or playing opportunities!
Match-ups are automatically available with players immediately around you in the rankings, or you can send a ‘wildcard’ request to any player. Once a match-up is open you can chat in-app to agree a date, time and format for your match.
Match results are reported through the app and once confirmed the rating of both players will immediately update to reflect the new rankings!
Welcome to Sportch… we promise to be a game changer!
We cater for all players – whether you’re male, female, young, old, beginner or pro; and whatever your motivation; keeping fit, socialising, improving, competing or just looking to have fun!
