Pykup gets you off the couch and into a game: without playing phone tag with your friends!
Kids (and adults!) in San Francisco mostly don’t play pickup games anymore. Parents I know pay to register their kids in sports programs with professional coaches, traveling schedules, new uniforms, the works. Maybe they’re concerned about safety–they don’t want their kid hanging around a basketball court for hours, waiting for friends to show up. Or maybe they’re concerned that their kid won’t grow up knowing how to do a victory dance in front of a stadium full of cheering fans… But anyhow, if safety, timing, or convenience is a concern then a simple app for arranging when we’re playing together would be helpful.
Pykup is closed now. Ahead of its time!
