Let’s Go Ball has exciting news for users of their socially interactive website and app. The company is celebrating having reached the 1,000-court milestone. This means their database now includes detailed information and locations for more than 1,000 — basketball courts in Northern California, providing people of all ages options for places to practice, compete, and have fun playing the sport.
“We are thrilled about reaching this milestone,” said Terry Jensen, Founder of Let’s Go Ball. “We launched our free access website on a mission to develop the most detailed directory of basketball courts on the Internet. We blew past our original goals, and now we’re focused on scaling up.”
The Redding, CA based startup company began development after Jensen realized he had a unique solution to a problem. “I pride myself on knowing where just about every basketball court is in the city,” he said. “Back in the day, before the Internet, my friends relied on me to organize pickup games schools or city parks.”
But Terry, who has been coaching basketball for nearly 25 years, was particularly good at pinpointing a certain kind of basketball court - “Dunk Hoops” as he calls it. “Those were the best streetball games ever, and I realized there was no way to search the Internet for a basketball court like that.”
The Let’s Go Ball team discovered the Internet was severely lacking in its ability to locate basketball courts. He adds, “We searched Google, Yelp, city park websites… it was sad.” So the first experiment was to accurately pinpoint every basketball court in Redding, CA. As Terry explains it, “We took bets on how many we could find. I think I guessed 30 or so.”
The total number was far greater. In fact, Let’s Go Ball currently lists more than 70 basketball courts in Redding, CA alone. Jensen proudly admits, “We found so many great places to play basketball, and that’s when we knew Let’s Go Ball would be something special.”
For those searching for a nearby basketball court, the Let’s Go Ball website features the most advanced filtering system available to help people of all ages find the perfect place to play. Visitors can enter their zip code or a specific court name to find the nearest courts, or simply enter a city and choose from an extensive list of options.
The company founder added, “My goal is for Let’s Go Ball to become the Priceline.com of basketball courts,” referring to an industry leading hotel and travel website. “People want to know about their destination before they get there. It’s true of hotels, restaurants, and even basketball courts.”
The result is a fun, interactive, easy-to-use platform for viewers to find a list of nearby basketball courts, which can then be filtered down by indoor or outdoor, court surfaces, equipment, access, parking, distance from search area, and even the Let’s Go Ball proprietary dunk hoops filter. From there, viewers can explore each basketball court in detail and see photos, videos, and member ratings.
The company envisions more social interactivity and a free mobile app in the future. “It was our goal from day one to launch a free, easy-to-use mobile app for Let’s Go Ball” says Jensen. “We see users uploading highlight videos, court photos, and coordinating with each other to schedule games.”
Terry sums it all up by saying, “We love basketball, and we believe wholeheartedly in the physical, social, and emotional benefits of the sport. We want to help people all across the country keep their passion and love for the game alive.”
