What is Hoops?
Hoops is a new app designed to take the hassle out of organising your sports life, meaning you can concentrate on what is important – having fun.
You can sign up as an organiser to create your sports and fitness events, helping you to manage payments, ensure that drop-outs don’t affect the quality of your sessions through waiting lists and group chats, and create recurring events to put an end to annoying administration.
Alternatively, you can join as a participant, with thousands of events from hundreds of sports and fitness activities just a click away. Look for your favourite sports nearby, or use the app to discover something new.
With events from football to Zumba to Quidditch there’s sure to be something for you.
The Home screen
Every time you log onto the app you’ll be asked whether you’re using Hoops to participate or organise. You can toggle between the home screens of both using the “switch” button on the top right of the screen. As a participant you’ll see sports events you may be interested in near you. As an organiser, you see your organised events. Simple!
Creating sporting events
To create an event you set yourself as an organiser, press the large, rounded “create” button at the bottom and you’re off! You then have to complete a quick three stage process – setting event type, location, attendance details, payment methods etc – and boom! You’re now an organiser on Hoops.
Joining sporting events
As a participant you’ll be signing up for events through this screen. All of the info you need to make a decision on whether an event is for you should be right there in one place. If you like what you see, click join, make your payment if the event is not free to reserve your spot, and then you’re done. All that’s left is to attend the event and to remember to have fun.
