Map My Tracks has launched a Clubs service which provides sports clubs with a dedicated app of their own that features club activity, membership management and group messaging. Map My Tracks has added to its range of features to provide sports clubs with an app of their own that takes just a few minutes to set up.
Once set up, it results in a web app, that can be added to your phone’s home screen, that functions just like a native app downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. With a club app being able to be set up, and branded, in minutes it means that just about every sports club can provide its members with a centralized source for rides, routes, messaging and membership management.
The Map My Tracks Clubs app is based on years of work with its local club, Canterbury Bicycle Club. It brings together all the features that have proved invaluable to them with many being based on their experience during Covid lock down periods. During each lock down period the app became the club’s preferred way to organise group rides and activity and limit capacity. It also, acted as a way to keep everyone up-to-date with club activity and news.
Since our launch in 2007, Map My Tracks has pioneered the use of mobile phones to record and live stream performance telemetry for sports like cycling and running. The club app builds on this experience and includes a live map allowing club members to see where everyone else might be when out on club rides. Great for making sure everyone stays safe and doesn’t get lost.
“It made sense to bring together all the experience we’ve gained from the work done with one of our local club and make it available to all clubs,” said Nick Tatt of Map My Tracks. “For us, this initial release is just the start. We have grand plans to provide every club in the country with an app of its own, putting behind us all the days of having to check three or four different platforms just to find out what is happening on the weekend club ride.”
Map My Tracks Clubs is free to use for clubs up to 30 members. For clubs with more than 30 members there is a £12 monthly subscription. Club apps can be branded to suit your club colours and includes permission control over how the app is used by club members.
