Find sports venues!
No matter where you are Playnify will help you quickly find the nearest sports venues available for you to enjoy your favourite sports!
Do you usually play with the same group of players week after week? Why not create a team?! This way you can more easily share information and schedule events!
Schedule and participate in sports events!
On Playnify it is super easy to schedule sports events! Just create a new event, define the date and settings and invite other players. You can also join sports events happening near you with the easiness of a click!
Share your sports activity!
Why limit your sports life just for yourself? Share what you have been playing on Playnify and Facebook and you will for sure gather the attention of other players in your region that will want to become your sports partners.
Your availability calendar helps other players know when you are available to play sports. This helps players understand when it is the best time to schedule a match with other players but it is also very useful when you want to do quick searches for events or players or even to configure event notifications.
You can configure your availability on your profile page.
Playnify helps you to find new sports partners anywhere you are! Many of them you don’t know anything about so it is important to understand if they are pleasant people to play with and against with. For that we have the Fairplay rating! The fairplay rating measures the feedback given by other players regarding your individual or team fairplay performances. In each event you participate in only your opponents can give you fairplay rating so be nice to them! The higher the number of votes and the score of your fairplay the most attractive player you are for other players to invite you to their sports events.
Take notice that on team events, each players rates the opponent team with a single fairplay rating meaning that all team members are rated equally. If you see a teammate being rather aggressive, try to promote a change in behaviour or the opponents may classify your team with bad fairplay.
You can also penalize some players specifically in a given event. Imagine that a player arrived very late at the event or didn’t even show up, or imagine a player that was simply too much aggressive during the match. These players can be individually sanctioned and their fairplay rating will be severely downgraded due to these actions.
Integrating your Facebook account allows you to easily and seamlessly share your sports activity with your Facebook friends so that they can know what you’ve been up to! You can configure what notifications you want to share on the preferences page.
Teams are a great way to group players and make organizing sports events much more efficient. Whenever you want to schedule an event with your team you only need to send 1 invitation to your team and every player will receive it individually. Furthermore, teams are very useful to find other groups of players that play the same sports as you do making it easier to schedule team events with lots of players.
A sports venue is a building, structure, or place in which a sporting competition is held. It can be a stadium, arena, park, gym, swimming pool, beach, field, etc. Each sports venue has an address, is pined on a map and has sports associated that can be supposedly played there.
At Playnify we believe that the best contributors to build the largest sports venues directory in the world are the users! So, it’s users that create the sports venues profiles. Users can do this by 2 different ways:
By creating a sports venue profile from scratch selecting all applicable sports on a given venue
Or, by creating an event on a new sports venue where the event sport will automatically be associated with the sport venue
Giving the power to the people is great but information consistency is also important! So, if a sports venue has more events played than another sports venue with the same name this means that users consider that the information on the first one is supposedly more correct than the second one.
You should add favourite sports venues so that you can more efficiently search for events or receive event notifications that match those venues. It also enables your players network to know that you usually play in those sports venues and increase the probability of meeting you there someday!
