How to move your group from Meetup in 2 easy steps

With examples from other sports groups

Two easy steps to make the transition simple!

1.Create your first event! (We recommend you create at least one upcoming event before inviting members to your group, so that they can see that there is upcoming activity!)

2. Invite members to your OpenSports group by making announcements about your next few events on Meetup!

  • Continue to post your events on Meetup, but attach the link to your OpenSports events so that players know that they MUST join through OpenSports!
  • Give a clear indication that you will be using OpenSports as the exclusive platform to collect RSVPs and payment.

Have fun!!
