What's it do?
Sport Pass gives sport clubs in New York the flexibility they really need to reach more customers by allowing them to promote specific classes (anything from tennis lessons to yoga classes) and issue a desired number of passes at reasonable prices. It's great for customers too, because it allows them to book classes at discounted rates whenever it suits them. It is a win-win for everybody. And there's an iphone app for that :).
What motivated you to create the application?
Every day, tennis courts and racquetball, boxing rings and hundreds of fitness classes at athletic clubs around the city sit empty due to last-minute cancellations. Meanwhile, athletes looking to play a tennis match or take a yoga class after a long day at work discover that they can't find what they are looking for because they waited until the last minute to book their game. Sport Pass is our solution to this very problem.
