Pitchbooking currently facilitates over 15,000 sessions of sport a year, with clients including Goals Soccer Centres, Oxford City Council, and Wokingham Borough Council.

We have created a product that makes it easy for users to book and easy for facility owners to manage their sports facilities. Our early customers have given glowing testimonials of our offering, and now we are looking to rapidly expand our customer base across the UK and Ireland.
