I like basketball. I like playing it. I like watching it. It is just good fun!
I am lucky enough to work at a job where I can get out and shoot hoops at lunch. Over the years our circle of players has expanded and now we routinely have games of 5v5 with players from 5 or so different companies. Some days we have even filled up 2 courts! Organizing this is a major pain. Nobody has the time to do the coordination. So a couple of months ago I threw together rtphoops.com to help streamline the process.
It is built with PHP for the server side logic and MySql for the data storage.
It lets people sign up for games at one of 2 courts up to 5 days in advance. It has a home grown integrated chat on the front page. It also has email features to reach those who cannot be bothered with a web browser.
If you work in the RTP area feel free to sign up!
