What is Courtdate?
First of all, Courtdate is not a law firm. Courtdate is a solution to on-demand athletic facility rentals. We connect local athletes, trainers and teams of all levels with open, available sports spaces in our community. It shouldn’t be difficult to reserve open gym time for your pickup league. With Courtdate, you can browse and book times at facilities nearby that you maybe didn't know were available. There’s value on both sides of this market. Athletic facilities almost always have empty holes in their schedule. Empty gyms, vacant fields, and melting ice. Local groups that would pay for this time currently have no way to find (much less pay for) these pockets of time. This is inefficient! By listing their space’s recurring free time on Courtdate, athletic facilities are able to maximize their staff and earning potential. Local groups find value in their new ability to find athletic space on shorter notice.
How it started
The idea for an online sports space marketplace came to found Matt Hoover after a frustrating experience reserving a court at a local gym. Matt began building Courtdate as a new centralized way to easily find and book local indoor basketball gyms, soccer fields, and volleyball courts on-demand.
Omaha has been called "the amateur sports capital of the United States" by some. Although it has no major league sports team, in recent years Omaha has earned a reputation for going all out when hosting athletic tournaments like the Olympic Swim Trials and the NCAA Men's Sweet 16. It makes sense for us to plant our flag in a city that's passionate about supporting sporting activities of all levels.
