September 16, 2013 (Newswire.com) - GoPlayPool owners announced on September 17, 2013 that they had reached the one year anniversary of launching their app. The GoPlayPool app began as an idea that there should be a way to find pool tournaments. After a solid year of work in creating the database of pool rooms and building the website and app, the GoPlayPool app earned Apple's approval and went live on September 17, 2012.
"I can't believe it has been a year!" said GoPlayPool owner, Mary Ann Starkey. "We've been working so hard so I suppose the time has just gone by quickly. I'm very pleased to say that the support, the enthusiasm and the positive reactions to the app have been instrumental to our success so far. I am really looking forward to the next year and the great times that are to come. We love pool and we want to see those who play the sport as well as support it be able to thrive. Pool is a sport that has been around for centuries and it should be as main-stream as any other professional sport."
Mary Ann Starkey and Ramin Bakhtiari are the creators of GoPlayPool and founders of the company. They also play pool in the southern California area, and travel throughout the western U.S. to various pool tournaments.
The GoPlayPool app features a directory of pool halls in the United States along with tournament listings, information about leagues and tours throughout the country as well as a music playlist, live stream listings and much more. The GoPlayPool app is free to download on both iOS and Android.
If pool halls are interested in promoting their establishment, they can become a member of GoPlayPool and create a detailed profile of their room, including all amenities they offer, not just pool. The rooms get the first 30 days of their membership for free, and after that it is only $19.95 per month. GoPlayPool also does advertising for businesses and individuals within the industry such as retailers, clothing companies and cue makers. They also promote leagues and tours at no charge.
