You can turn on the gender, skill level, and availability invite filters to ensure only the right players in your group are receiving notifications about events.
  • Event invite filters allow you to invite players at different levels (beginner, intermediate, or advanced)

Watch as players fill all the spots quickly

  • Limit the number of spots available
  • Open spots for teams of two for doubles games
  • Send invites to players in your group, filtered by skill level, or open to everyone
  • Players confirm their spot by RSVP’ing and paying
  • View attendees list and waitlist
  • When spots fill quickly, the automatic waitlist turns on and manages the attendees list, and sends automatic refunds for you!

Repeat events

  • Unlimited events can be made for the future
  • Event details can easily be edited
