Thank you to our sponsor!
The ZenSports team is obsessed about one thing — creating a delightful experience for finding and connecting with others to play sports. We know first hand the pain points that players go through in trying to find who is available in their area to play with, or which leagues and tournaments are happening. We also understand that you want to be able to broadcast yourself from your matches, see how your friends are doing in their competitions, track all of your stats, and compare yourself to others locally and worldwide. That’s why we’ve developed the most beautiful and delightful mobile app experience specifically tailored to sports. Most other sports technologies and websites look like they were developed in 1995. Not ZenSports. Our team has a combined 15 years of sports and technology experience. So not only do we understand how sports work, we also understand how to build beautiful technology products.
