Chapter 7: Hoops Connect hits the app stores

As those dedicated Hoops fans among you already know, we’ve been chronicling the life of a start-up company since we kicked off this blog back in October. Now, finally, we have the news that we’ve been waiting to tell you all that time. Hoops Connect Version 1 is available to download in app stores…


We knew that this summer was going to be an exciting time in the history of Hoops, and we certainly haven’t been let down.

For the last couple of months a select few have had access to our Public Beta, while we collated information and got the app ready for general release.

And now, after years of hard work, we can proudly sit back and watch people organising their sports lives through Hoops, exactly as founder Jonas had in mind when he created the app.

Simply search for Hoops Connect in either the iOS or Google Play app stores, and let the way you find sport and fitness opportunities and manage event creation be changed forever.


So what now?

Hoops may have been released, but the app is still far from finished. In truth, it never will be.

We have so many ideas for how to improve and expand the service that we offer that you can rest assured that we won’t be resting on our laurels.

Importantly, now that Hoops is out there in the big wide world, we get to see just how people want to use the app.

If you can provide us with any feedback, it could provide us with crucial clues on how we can best develop going forwards.

And the more people you can recommend us to, the more people we get using the app, the more vibrant a Hoops community there is for us all to use.

If you’re as excited about the potential for Hoops as we are, it really would benefit everyone if you tell everyone you know about us, and force your friends to download us too!

Thanks in advance!



Something else we’ll be pushing on with is developing our relationships within the world of sport.

There’s nothing more rewarding than getting to events and seeing people enjoying sport that we’ve had a hand in organising.

And nowhere has that been more evident than at BallOut 3×3 in London at the weekend.

The guys put on a great tournament, and the passion for the sport on show was inspiring.

Next up is the BallOut national finals on August 12th, so stay tuned for more action from there too – we can’t wait!


What’s next?

Hoops is now available in app stores, so you can use us to find opportunities for any sport or fitness activity you can think of. Simply click here to download the app for Android, and here for iOS – or search for Hoops Connect.

Just because Hoops is out, it doesn’t mean that our work ends. In fact, it’s only just beginning. So, if you want to keep up with how we’re driving the app forwards, click here to subscribe to our emails, and follow us on TwitterFacebookInstagram, PinterestLinkedInMedium and even on Spotify. We’re everywhere, and hopefully we’ll be on your phone soon too!
