Renting basketball courts shouldn't be hard.

But it is. There’s no online list of rentable courts, and even the handful of gyms you can find on Google don’t make it easy to rent. Most don’t show pricing and almost none show their availability online - you have to either call or fill out an email form and wait 3-5 days (or more) to hear back. And if that gym isn’t the right fit for whatever reason, you have to start all over or stop trying 🕯

Courtside is an online marketplace of rentable basketball courts. We're connecting facilities with people who want to rent their space by the hour. Whether you're looking for a local gym to rent weekly or want to get private gym time in on the road, we have you covered.

Our Story

The idea for Courtside was born when Jack was organizing a group of friends to play basketball together, and scoured through dozens of dead ends and endless phone calls to try to find a court. After many hours down the drain, Jack managed to secure a court - and went on to have a blast fostering friendships old and new as he and a group of guys spent a week on this basketball retreat, playing together daily.

He went on to do this kind of retreat over and over again, in cities across the country. Every time, the pain point was the same: how do we secure a court without wasting hours of time?

Tadas joined Jack on one of these retreats. Eager to enable recreational basketball players around the country to have the same experience, Jack and Tadas put their skillsets together, and Courtside was born.
