Rovo is an app that connects you with other sports players nearby. It takes the hassle out of coordinating timings and matching others of the same skill level so you can #playmore!

Broadcast your hit!

Still need to fill up remaining slots for your tennis singles, doubles or social hit? You can now broadcast your hit to others near you. When you broadcast your hit, Rovo will find suitable players near you and send them a notification on Rovo.

Here's what that looks like:

You'll see a broadcast button when you're viewing the hit...

Once you tap on the broadcast button, you'll see the option to broadcast the hit. Because the act of broadcasting notifies players on Rovo nearby, we require that you do the following before sending a broadcast:

  • Specify an exact time
  • Specify the location of the hit
  • Ensure that the court is booked
  • Make sure the hit is public (so anyone can discover it) Rovo Broad

That's it! The app will then tell you how many players have been notified of your hit. You can re-broadcast after 2 hours.

While waiting for the 2 hours, you can also try sharing your hit on WhatsApp/ Facebook/ Instagram or other platforms. We find Facebook groups to be particularly effective in getting your hit on!

Filter by Gender

Now this is one you have been asking for a while, so first and foremost, an apology is in order. Sorry this took longer than expected. As they say though, better late then never! 😜😜

You can filter by gender in your player search preferences like so:

Discover hits near you

For the next feature, a huge shoutout goes out to the players that personally reached out to us & suggested it.

For those of you who have flexible schedules and wouldnt mind joining hits nearby that are still short of players, you can now browse hits nearby in the play section of the app. Check it out:

Star your favourite players

Played with someone & really hit it off? 😜 geddit?
You can now star players too. Star'ing players will make them much easier to invite to hits as they appear first when you choose to invite players. Starred players are also easily assessable in your inbox:

Oh and one more thing, your friends on facebook are automatically starred for you. You're welcome!

Cancel a hit

Last but not least, a feature that was highly requested as well, you can cancel hits that you accidentally created (or can no longer commit to as a host). Check it out:

Thanks!

And that's it for this update. As always, thank you for your continuous feedback. We hope you enjoy this update! #playmore!
