Santa Monica, California, (July 09, 2017):- iPlayHoops Inc., the Santa Monica based company launches Fullcourt, a free iOS and Android social app that allows basketball players to coordinate games.
Fullcourt allows basketball players to coordinate games, view real time information on courts, see peak times of courts near you, and build a basketball network. The app currently has over 10,000+ courts in the US and over 20,000+ worldwide. Fullcourt was founded by Philip Wilson, a coach, a player and a complete basketball enthusiast.
“I love basketball, it is in my blood. My father was the Men’s Varsity Head Coach of the local High School in California. I basically grew up in a gym and followed my father’s footsteps and became a coach after my collegiate basketball career ended. Discussing with my father, we saw something missing in the basketball industry. A tool that will make things significantly easier to manage and organize games”, stated Mr. Wilson.
“I believe people should be able to play basketball 24 hours a day,” said Wilson, “That is what we are trying to achieve. We are providing people the information and resources to make that happen, and ultimately get people playing more basketball.”
With hundreds of users after the initial soft launch, Fullcourt quickly became one of the favorite social networks for basketball players that play at local basketball courts and gyms, and a resource for them to coordinate these games.
“I saw the industry of basketball from the inside, as a coach and a player, and realized it could be run more efficiently. After years of coaching and being a part of basketball world, my father and I built something that allows us to give back to the community that we had been a part of for some long. It’s our way of saying thank you!”, added Wilson. “Allowing young players the ability to play basketball whenever they want, will hopefully keep them out of trouble. As a coach, it’s all about providing a way for the next generation to connect with basketball.”
Fullcourt is built on the premise that the game of basketball is changing and the next generation of youth are will want a way to connect with basketball on another level. The app is free for both iOS and Android.
