What is a Sports Socializing Network?

One of the questions we get asked most often is what is a Sports Socializing Network exactly, and how does it differ from a Social Network, Sports Network or a Sports Social Network.  Though there are similarities and overlaps, there are big differences between the latter three and a Sports Socializing Network.

First let me define what the other three are.

First up is the Social Network:

better known as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat … This is where you keep up with your friends and what they are doing in general, having kids, going out to bars, starting new hobbies, playing sports, supporting teams, liking new companies…the list is endless.  This is 90% of the time a passive activity but great for keeping up with the goings on of friends all over the globe.

Second up is a Sports Network:

ESPN is a Sports Network, they offer the chance to watch and find out about major sports happening around the world.  Sky Sports falls into this category as it offers the same but just with a different accent.  In general this is a passive activity.

Last up is a Sports Social Network:

sportslosbster, PlayUp and even things like Teamtalk could fall into this range.  Though these are great, and used by the One Player Down Team, they tend to focus on behind a Computer users, not the people that participate in sports,  you guys!  So once again it is a passive activity, showing the support for a team and discussing with like minded fans about a sport/team you love.  It is a somewhat hybrid of the Social Network and the Sports Network.

Now we come to the Sports Socializing Network…There is only one in the world and you guessed it, you are reading the blog of the one and only Sports Socializing Network there is – One Player Down.  We are not about the passive keyboard warriors or the fans of the sport, we are about the movers and shakers, the ones that want to Get in the Game.  We are a “sweating is not optional” platform, helping you to meet new people, stay active and organize games/teams/leagues with the minimum amount of effort.

Being a fan is great fun but being a player…that is just better.

Skill level is not an issue, playing is the name of the game.

So what are you waiting for?  Get in the Game
