App doesn't work, website payment page is broken and when I called up to try to book over the phone they were incredibly unhelpful and ultimately I wasn't able to get a pitch. Seriously bad experience. It's honestly hard to imagine how they can be this bad!

3 times I tried to book a pitch using this app. All were unsuccessful. For the first 2 I received a link for alternatives I paid for them but no confirmation and then questioned the situation (by email because phone number was never answering) they said there was a block book in. So why did they send a link, I don't know. 3rd booking went all through confirmations and everything sent, then receive an email to say you have been refunded because someone else has bkd it. I hve nvr used the srvce

We understand your frustrations and having looked into it have seen that there was some miscommunication between our service and venue. The links expire if not confirmed and means other sports player can take the slot. We're glad you have used the service again for a football game. Get in touch if you would like to book in another game.

I just downloaded this about a week ago to make an enquiry about block booking a local football pitch for 20 weeks. To date nobody has replied considering what a lucrative opportunity this is, even after leaving a comment on the App. Don't waste your time with this App.
