MyLocalPitch began with a problem faced by countless sports players in cities across the world. Jamie Foale and Sandford Loudon were trying to book a football pitch in London for their Sunday league team, but kept hearing the monotonous tones of answer machines and the faint buzz of rejection from an unanswered email.
They couldn't believe there was no one-stop shop for sports players looking to find, contact and book local sports pitches. They set about researching, getting support for and then building a platform that showed all sports venues anywhere in London, and that was free and easy for anyone to use.
MyLocalPitch was launched in January 2014 and quickly became the hub for sports players of all types, whether it be casual players for an after work game, tennis rivals on a bright Saturday morning, or those looking for a social but competitive netball team to join.
