|PlayBasketNow - Do you want to play?|

PlayBasketNow is a social platform and smartphone app that helps people to quickly organize basket games with friends and other people around. Everyone who wants to play can easily know whether someone is recruiting players for a game.
A lot of people play basketball and many of them are truly in love with this sport. When you are young you can afford to play it on daily basis, but as your commitments grow is always more difficult to find time for a play. The main problem to get sporadic games is the organization: it's not easy find other people who can play in the same spare time. Another issue could be the lacking of basket players in your circle of friends. Sometimes you want to organize a play only with specific kind of players (low skilled, high skilled etc...) because you are searching for specific level. Even if you suddenly get free time it's difficult to be able to have a play as here and now.
We want more basket plays. Apart stating the obvious, we want to build a big community around basketball. A site and smartphone app will be developed. Using geolocation everyone could find all the people who want to play a game close to him in the near future. After the game the score and the members will be saved for future statistics. Every register member can ranks all players who played with and the whole system will be integrated into facebook, in order to share photos related to a specific games(maybe stats too). As member you will be able to propose a play in the near future, in a specific location and if you set the event free, every people searching for it near there will find the event. You can set various kind of trainings too and other people can join if they like.
Target group and social impact
We expect social impact to be huge and to push more and more people to play basket since it will get a lot of pubblicity over social networks. A lot of people who want to play basket but can't organize or find other people for an easy play, will be able to start to fall in love again with this beautifull sport. PlayBasketNow will increase health and promote sport as well. Another important aspect is that will promote a real socialization between people. Think for a stranger who moved in a new town recenlty, he/she will find new friends easily going to organized games. Probably one of the first social network that actually force people to go out.
