According to the Pew Internet data, 12% of American Adults have ever used online dating sites or mobile dating apps, which is slightly up from 9% in 2013.
But, here we are not talking about a dating application, but about Tinder-type application, Bvddy, an app to find someone to play sports with. However, it doesn’t preclude a match with another athlete from turning into a romantic affair. Playing any sports is necessary to maintain good health. So, Bvddy has developed for those people, who want to find sports partners.

Formerly known as SportsBuddy, Bvddy was launched in January 2015 with a stupendous feature, i.e. Smart Matching algorithms that learn about players over time, including how often players are playing, their location, competitive spirit, punctuality, and actual skill level to provide accurate matches.
The founder and CEO of Buddy Tech, CEO Pedro Ast wanted to change all that with an app that helps athletes keep up their game after college or high school. Bvddy, a mobile hookup app developed by the Miami, Florida startup wanted to match athletes in a given sport with others, who have the similar skill level and searching for the partner, who play at the same time in a mutually convenient venue.
Users have to download the application and create a profile. After that, they can search or other people, who play specify sports based on skill level, location, and other criteria. Users can also interact with other players to schedule time and location. Even, they can search more activities, rate opponents and create public or private sporting events.
This application helps athletes or would-be athletes to book dates for fitness activities like tennis, soccer, basketball, running or golf, and other activities loved by enthusiasts like kite mixed martial arts, surfing, or dodgeball.

Before closing pre-series A round of seed funding, Bvddy raised $715,000 from LatAm investors, IDC Group (Grupo IDC) and former BlueKite CEO and current Paypal executive Bobby Aitkenhead. Bvddy uses this fund to improve its technology and test the concept within the sports community.
