As those dedicated Hoops Connect 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 2016. In Chapter 9, we take a look at what we have in store in the new year…
Happy New Year!
Christmas is over, and although that first alarm call on Tuesday morning was painful, it feels good to get back into the swing of things.
Here at Hoops Connect we have just one New Year’s resolution: to improve and to grow.
2018 is going to be a crucial year for our project. 2017 went well. The foundations have been laid. But the hard work starts here.
Our company is going to see massive change this year. Or perhaps a better way to put it is that we’re going to evolve – into something very exciting.
We can’t give too much away at the moment. That’s not because we enjoy teasing you. As soon as we have news, we’ll be sharing it.
Suffice to say, Hoops Connect was founded for simple reasons – we saw that there was a gap in the market for an app that would allow people to organise their sports sessions, and to find sport and fitness opportunities in their local area.
What we created in 2017 is an app that performs those functions. When we look at what we’ve built we’re proud to see sporting events organised through Hoops Connect all over the country.
But that’s not enough. We want to help you get active, to find new sports and to make new friends through physical activity. And to do that we need to grow.
2018 will be the year that growth happens. Watch this space.
It’s January once more, the favourite time of year for gym companies all over the country.
Needless to say, if a New Year’s resolution is the motivation you need to get active, then you should use it for all it’s worth.
But here at Hoops Connect we celebrate the diversity of sporting and fitness opportunities available to us in Britain – and not just those that you can find on our app, either!
Going to the gym is a great way to get fit.
But is it the most enjoyable method for you? Or would you get more of a kick out of playing Korfball, squash or futsal?
Odds are you don’t know because you’ve never tried.
The solution? Download Hoops Connect and see what sport is happening in your neighbourhood.
We can’t think of a better New Year’s resolution than that!
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 Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Medium and even on Spotify. We’re everywhere, and hopefully we’ll be on your phone soon too!
