Find yo’self a Sports Buddy!

Sports Partners is a free website  where our members can find other individuals, teams, clubs, or businesses for sports, hobbies and travel.   You can search by activity, club type or business type, age, sex, location, and skill level.   For example, your new year’s resolution is to get fit, and so you would like to find a running partner, walking partner or perhaps even a soccer team or touch football team.

At the click of just a few buttons you can have a list of people’s profiles in front of you, from where you can then make secure contact with as few or as many of them as you choose –all for free of course.   The same deal applies if you are in search of a particular business type or club.   Simply nominate the business or club type, the distance range from your postcode, and you will have the contacts for the relevant organisations in front of you in a matter of seconds.  Of course, if you are business or club, Sports Partners is a great place for you to gain targeted exposure.

Sports Partners caters for all ages, and is a great site if you are in search of a new golf partner, or maybe even a dance partner.  In a similar vain, Sports Partners is proving extremely popular with people travelling away from home, people new to town and looking to meet others for sports and hobbies, as well as those simply looking for travel partners.   What better way to meet new people when you are new to town, then to join a new netball team or basketball team, or even just to find a walking partner or running partner to get fit with or a mothers group to chew the fat.

‘To keep things fun at Sports Partners, we run regular Sports Tipping competitions, with some great prizes up for grabs.  Some recent competitions have included the Australian Open Tennis, Ashes Cricket, World Cup Cricket, and Delhi Commonwealth Games to name a few, where our winners have won all sorts of great prizes ranging from Netbook computers, to Nintendo Wii’s and Sony Playstations, to iTune vouchers,  Alpha Sports Magazine subscriptions and Rebel Sport gift vouchers” says founder Michael Vincent.
