The Impact of Covid-19
Pickup Sports, Pickup Sports App, App for Pickup Sports
The COVID-19 pandemic has only exasperated the societal problems that fostered the creation of our app, and we have adjusted our short- and long-term plans accordingly. We have pushed back our beta testing to at least May of 2021 (or later if necessary) to promote social distancing and the mitigation of the virus until then and ensure that our users can play in a safe environment when our app becomes available for use. Following the pandemic, we seek to provide a sense of normalcy by offering a unique, entertaining source of physical activity in outdoor public spaces for the vast majority of people who were couped up in their home and inactive during that time.
