Get Your Game On

Posted by Jade / February 27, 2007

20070229_hockey.jpgThink of it as a cross between MySpace and the bulletin board in your local gym. A new, free Montreal-based website, ilovetoplay.com, is determined to get you out of the house and on your feet.

Dedicated to athletes and would-be athletes alike, ilovetoplay.com finds you running partners, introduces you to neighborhood pick-up games, and helps you to finally organize that floor hockey team you’ve been meaning to put together. Member profiles with pictures, personal information, and sports preferences allow for not only quick searches to find that sixth person for the volleyball team, but also encourages casual socializing between ilovetoplay.com users.

According to the website’s President and CEO Marc Chriqui, currently there are about 100 registered members of ilovetoplay.com, with roughly 70% of them living in Montreal. "We’ve been developing this website for over a year now, and we just launched a month and a half ago," says Chriqui. "Right now, we are trying to get the word out and get more people to sign up."

A contest is being held on the website at present - the three members with the most new ilovetoplay.com referrals will win gift certificates for Amazon.com. First place receives $250, which is just about enough to cover all that new sports equipment you’ll be getting to see you through the spring (only two months away!).
