How it works

Clubscaddy is a zero-footprint, cloud-based application that you can simply access through the Web without the need to install the software on your computer. Its mobile apps are written using native iOS and Android SDKs with a rich responsive UI.

The App caters to the needs of two main personas; members and administrators.The club setup is fairly easy. To add your club to the ClubsCaddy catalog, we need the following details from you.

  • Sports your club supports.
  • Reservation rules per sport such as maximum hours a member can reserve time per sport, per day.
  • List of all members with their name,gender, email, phone number and sport.

Afteryour club is added to the ClubsCaddy catalog all members of your club will receive an email notification with their login details. They can download the Clubs Caddy App from App store orGoogle play.They can login to the app with the provided credentials or through Facebook Login and start using the app. Yes, it is that EASY!

Members who play multiple sports can access the app features for those sports as long as their club is part of the catalog. They can switch between clubs within the same app.For example, if a member plays Golf and Tennis at a club, he can easily access both sports as long as his club is listed in the ClubsCaddy Catalog.

Your club administrators can access everything on an iPad or Android Tablet instead of using bulky desktop at the front desk. However, if you already have a computer, you can continue to use it to access the ClubsCaddy web interface. Simply login to the website’s customer portal to access all the app features.

    Match Maker

    Match maker is a powerful functionality in ClubsCaddy to help teams fill up available player spots quickly for an upcoming game or practice. Instead of sending texts or emailsto a bunch of people,

    then waiting and sorting through their responses to fill a team, you can send a match maker invite to a specific group to join.

    Imagine you want to play tonight at some time but don’t have enough players to play with. Fortunately there could be some others in your group in similar situation. Match maker lets you send invite a group to setup matches or fill up a team.

    Match maker invite requires you to provide the date, time, venue and number of players needed to fill the team. You then send the invite to a group that you created earlier. Everyone in the group gets a notification allowing them to accept or decline your invite. When a member accepts or declines your invitation, you are notified. You can add members who have accepted to you game. Your confirmation is sent to the players you added. You can use this tool effectively to fill a team whether it’s a tennis doubles game, or a foursome at golf or players needed for basketball, soccer, volleyball etc. Once you confirmed number of players you needed, matchmaker goes to closed state.

      • Go to member directory filter members with desired playing level and gender. Unselect the members you don’t want to play with. Then create a group with the rest. Use that group created in the match maker section.
