Using a ticketing system for sports clubs

Getting Started Jan 09, 2020

When you think of ticketing and booking systems you don't automatically think of how they might help sports clubs, but by taking some of the admin tasks away from the volunteers maybe more clubs should be thinking about it!

As a parent of two boys I have experienced many a medical form, subs registration, accompanied with send a cheque for subs, a bacs payment for a tour, bring cash for some club kit and pay into this other account for the club social quiz night. To be honest I am always a late payer because the process is always different!

One system, that would allow me to use a credit card or debit card, that I can do online at home or standing on the side of the pitch via mobile would have been handy. Not just easier for me, but for the poor coaches and managers chasing payments and the club secretaries having to deal with various payments flying around.

Holiday courses are another thing. Half term opens up a whole new set of club courses, and the ones that you can book online then forward onto to all your childrens friends Mums are onto a good thing.

Bookitbee has no set up costs, no monthly subscription and once you have set up your first event it is easy to duplicate regular, or create more. We only get paid when you get paid and free events will always be free!

Whether you need annual memberships, general admission for club events, adult and child, or a mix of half term and Easter holiday courses for children, the choice is yours with unlimited ticket types.

The box office feature includes door lists that can act as registers, and live check in so you know who is on site, it is also handy for emergency contact numbers, medical needs and approval for photography or parental authority for emergency treatment if needed.

The latter points come from adding custom questions to the booking process to learn more information about your attendees, with free text, date selection, single & multiple choice menu options. Allowing you to monitor contact preferences, medical conditions and even volunteer skills for your club.

The booking system integrates with Mailchimp so you can keep in touch with your members to help grow your club numbers.
