SportyHQ is built and maintained by sports fanatics. It's that love of sports that drives many of the features which set SportyHQ apart from the competition. Bringing statistics and social interaction to the average player that you would normally only expect at a professional level is one of the founding goals of SportyHQ.
While the underlying features of SportyHQ might have been built many times over by many others, we absolutely take a fresh approach to every feature. For example, leagues show detailed statistics about each player so that you can actually track home/away matches, player performance and more. Tournament draws show profile photos so that you can easily identify someone you might not know. Tournaments and leagues also increase the visibility of sponsors, create avenues for players to promote events and give valuable public and private feedback. The booking system offers players new ways to find great games quickly and easily while helping clubs ensure that courts don't go empty during peak times.
Combine all this with an incredibly friendly interface and you'll see why SportyHQ is quickly becoming known as a game-changer in our field.

Jan de Graad
Co-founder & Head of Sales
Jan is a squash fanatic, what he lacks in skill he tries to make up for in brute force and quantity of play time. He picked up a racket at the age of 8 and never stopped playing.
Jan has a natural flair for sales, making his first sale at the age of 7 and continued selling stuff throughout primary and high school paying for the dozens of sports he plays and his love for travel. He graduated with a B.Comm(Law) degree from Stellenbosch University in South Africa.
