One Player Down, the sports socializing network, is supporting Movember to tackle physical inactivity.
Sports Startup One Player Down is working with Movember to help raise awareness for their MOVE initiative, which is aimed at getting people moving to increase Mental & Physical health.
One Player Down is participating in Movember to promote the MOVE initiative, a 30 day fitness challenge during November to encourage Men to be more physically active. “It is of immense value for us to have local partners such as One Player Down to support Movember and to raise awareness for men’s health”, says Nina Corradini, Country Manager for Movember Austria. The MOVE month on One Player Down opens with a Launch event on 29th October, details on www.oneplayerdown.com
Not just talk, actually getting people to move
To kick off this Movember month on One Player Down, there will be a launch event on the 29th October, showcasing how sports and socializing can be mixed in different environments. The event starts at 7pm, all the details can be found on One Player Down
Kiosk, on Schleifmuhlgasse, is kindly hosting the launch event where DISH TENNIS, another Viennese startup, will be headlining, showcasing their unique version of Table Tennis, including the atmosphere that they are renowned for. This will be preceded by the introduction of TriVolle (aka Spikeball and Shark Tank investment winner) to Vienna for the first time. This will all be taking place on the 29th October.
That is not all
During the rest of the month there will be a number of other MOVE events, in the more traditional sporting style hosted on the One Player Down platform, so be sure to keep your eyes open. All the details of these events can be found on One Player Down. The highlights include a number of TriVolle tournaments, with the chance to win a TriVolle set.
“Movember’s new MOVE initiative and One Player Down is just a natural fit, so we contacted them to see what we could work on together. Our philosophy is that sports supersedes language, it is a great tool for integration and through the socializing nature, can be very helpful in combating physical and mental health issues such as depression or cardio-vascular diseases. So we are really happy to be working with Movember on this.” Nick Stein, One Player Down CEO co-founder.
