Sports and activities have always been an integral part of my life. I love being active and over the years grown a broad base of sport/activity experience. Keeping healthy while negotiating the challenges and stresses of work, family and personal demands is not easy, especially as I have aged. Having a healthy lifestyle has been my saving grace in navigating through various mental, physical and emotional challenges.
“The foundational support at each stage of my life has been my ability to connect and engage in sports through an active lifestyle, helping me to maintain my inner and outer well-being”
Founder & CEO of YOPP Pty Ltd
YOPP came about because of personal frustrations of lacking a practise partner in some of my sporting endeavours. My immediate networks were not able to fulfil this and whilst the sporting communities I’m a part of are and remain very active, my diary often did not co-ordinate with set training times. It got me wondering who else was battling like me – to learn, grow and/or maintain a sport or activity they love.
Living in a hyper-connected digital world most people today are feeling even more disconnected. For the young, middle aged, retired, I wanted to bridge this gap leveraging the efficiencies of the digital world with a “Social” app that not only connects people face to face, but facilates engagement, activity and ultimately the wellness I always got back from my sports.
Some FAQs are displayed below. Further guidance is provided within the app under the settings tab.

No, the app will never disclose your personal information to a user. Users will only be able to see your profile pic, name, age, distance away, sport and skill level. Once you are matched and chatting to a user, it will be up to the individual users to decide what and when personal information is disclose to each other.
The app provides matches based on distance, sport and gender. The sport and gender filters you select when you chose the activity you want to find a practise partner in. The distance filter is selected from within your profile page under the “Search” header.
Sports have been grouped by broad categories with sub categories under them, keep going into each menu option until you reach the individual sport.
