Toronto, ON (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
For many people the New Year brings promises of getting in shape. One of the best ways to have fun while getting fit is playing recreational sports. Not only does it make people feel better, it is also an opportunity to meet fun and interesting people. The problem, however, is easily finding others interested in the same sports at the same skill level.
"For many, it's difficult to fill a team roster or find people with compatible schedules," says Fred Moesker, co-founder of sportaholik.com, a free online service that connects sports players in Toronto. "Once people have exhausted their circle of friends and co-workers, where can they turn?" While there are sports leagues in Toronto, teams in those leagues find they still have a problem filling a team roster for each game. Also, not everyone wants to commit to a three month league. They just want to play whenever it fits with their busy schedule.
sportaholik.com combines the best aspects of online classified and social networking sites, with recreational sports as the focus. "We wanted to make it as easy to use as possible, thus players don't have to create an account to use our service," says Moesker. To get the most out of the site, though, he encourages players to create a player profile so they can be invited by others to join a game or team.
"sportaholik.com not only solves the problem of finding others to play with, it also facilitates meeting new people. Of course, if you just need a sub for this week's game, it works for that as well," says Moesker.
sportaholik.com is a free online service that connects Toronto sports players. Team captains and game organizers can make a post announcing the type of players they are seeking. Likewise, they can also search the database of players who are looking to play. Players seeking games or teams can search game postings for a match. Players can also create a player profile, so others can invite them to join a game or team.
