Running anything is hard. It’s a time suck. It can be difficult. And it’s thank-less. But someone’s gotta do it. Make it look easy. Painless. And smooth. It needs to be taken for granted. It needs to be that good.
We’ve taken a cut at running our fair share of rec events. It requires a commitment of time that people just don’t have anymore. And we’ve seen the slow decline of volunteers. The ‘it’s not worth it’ attitude. It’s no one’s fault. It’s today's reality.
We aren’t building the next rocket into space. It’s not some revolutionary movement that will change our dependency on non-renewable resources. It’s not even something that takes the ‘umph’ out of running a local community. But we are giving a chance, lessening the load for local leaders, that first gust of wind to give that butterfly its first flight perhaps, for people to meet.
We’ve seen friends born, colleagues come together, and roommates hook up because we made it just a wee bit easier to run something.
We started by helping to create a local league. And then we helped create a ladder. Ran a tournament. Then another league. And another right behind it. We’ve seen friends born, colleagues come together, and roommates hook up because we made it just a wee bit easier to run something. Our goal is simple: Bring sport, game, and activities to the people, by the people. No more awkward meet and greets. No more wondering what to say as you cycle through the common topics of conversation. Just a way for people to come together by doing something familiar.
We give the basic structure behind a ladder, league, (and soon-to-be) tournament so people can track, follow and take part in. We believe it solves the fundamental problem of bringing people closer together, face-to-face, ether-to-ether. This isn’t a build it and they will come concept. The people are already here - we just need to help build what everyone wanted all along. We bring you Smashscore.
