TORONTO, March 8, 2019 – CatchCorner, a Toronto-based startup aiming to modernize the recreational sports industry, announces its launch today.
CatchCorner is a hub-oriented app that allows users to rent ice rinks, basketball courts, soccer fields, and other playing surfaces in just a few clicks. The startup has optimized the booking process from start to finish. Users are able to search for upcoming availability, view booking details, instantly checkout, and split the bill directly through the web or mobile app.
While the CatchCorner app is a centralized body that aggregates availability across all facilities, the company also offers its partner facilities a customized online booking portal that easily embeds into their current websites.
Amongst its numerous advanced features, CatchCorner has further streamlined the booking experience by introducing a contract/waiver generator. This approach prompts users to easily sign such documents directly at checkout via e-signature.
In addition to simplifying the rental process, CatchCorner has partnered with facilities to organize hockey, basketball, and soccer ‘drop-in styled’ pickup games for its users to join. On the app, users are able to see each game’s recommended skill level, as well as the number of spots remaining in the game, which is updated on a real-time basis. Maya Azouri, CatchCorner’s Chief Operating Officer adds, “On the one hand, the games we run will be somewhat structured given that a CatchCorner representative will always be present and all attending players will receive a jersey for the duration of play. On the other, the informality of these games exists in the on-demand last-minute pickup styled experience. Overall, we envision that whenever you feel like playing sports, there’s always something reliable out there for you to do.”
CatchCorner already plans to expand beyond rentals and pickup games. Azouri explains, “Our vision includes the entire recreational sports industry, which is made up of many distinct product offerings. With that in mind, we’re currently developing features specifically designed for adult leagues and youth-based programs, classes, and camps.”
As a modernized platform with over 10,000 availabilities and games to currently choose from, CatchCorner is a startup on the rise that is poised to affect the way individuals rent sports facilities, play pickup games, and interact with sport-related activities.
CatchCorner is a hub-oriented application for booking sports facilities and playing pickup games. For more information, please visit www.catchcorner.com or check out the app on the App Store and Google Play.
