SportsMates is a basic designed website. All of the clubs are split up into different areas of the website which makes it really easy to find what you are interested in. You start by choosing the sport that you like, and then this is narrowed down again. You can carry on doing this until you find the areas that you are interested in.
You can read the blogs without needing to registry. However if you want to participate in the site and set up your own clubs then you will need to registry for an account. Signing up for an account is very simple and won’t take long to complete. When choosing your username bear in mind that this will form part of the address used to access your profile. There are a number of fields that you don’t need to enter unless you want to. This includes the IM messenger details which aren’t even used at the moment. You won’t need to confirm your account by checking an email. The only thing that you need to do is log in and you can start using the site. When you first log into your account you will be invited to complete your profile. If you complete your profile then you will be awarded points and also stand a better chance of other people finding you.
SportsMates is a completely free website and can be used by anyone for free. The site is supported by adverts but these don’t really get in the way. If you want to advertise on the sports mates’ website then you can by visiting the corporate website.
SportsMates is a well designed website which is aimed at sports lovers. The site is suitable for almost every single sports lover. The community is not so active, there are not many relevant blog posts or club profiles. The site could become more interesting when more users join SportsMates.
