Bookteq was designed and created by Playfinder, the UK’s leading marketplace for booking sports facilities. Playfinder connects players with a range of facilities including football pitches, tennis courts, sports halls, and more. The company has helped over 2.3 million people get out and play since launching in 2014. They are also recognised for:
- Industry-first search by time feature
- Increased utilisation by over 35%
- Award-winning app
CEO and Founder, Jamie Foale, set up Playfinder after struggling to find and book football pitches in London. With a mission to make it easier for everyone to play sport while increasing utilisation as a result, Playfinder has evolved to allow bookings for 20 different sports across the UK and Ireland.
Playfinder partner with over 600 venues in the UK and Ireland. They liaise with staff every day, gaining valuable insight into the management of independent clubs to multi-facility leisure centres. After years building these relationships, Playfinder have an in-depth understanding of venue managers’ needs from a booking system.
Bookteq is designed by and for venue managers. This input from industry experts sets Bookteq apart from other booking systems, making managing your venue as seamless as possible. Bookteq staff and trusted partners also use the software daily and continually contribute to optimising the system.
