Want to help start Brisbane’s largest social sports club on the Gold Coast?
- Imagine a world where you socialise with people, make new friends and get to play social sport… and get paid for it.
- If this sounds like your dream job then learn more about becoming the new face of SportUP Gold Coast.
- In this role you will be helping to start new social sport competitions on the Gold Coast, working directly with Sam Bass, the Founder of SportUP.
- Our mission at SportUP is to help busy young professionals banish boring weeknights by playing social sport together with friends old and new. We aim to help you return to work tomorrow less stressed, with a smile on your face, a story to tell and something to look forward to next week.
- SportUP is a bit different from your standard competitions as you can enter a team with your old mates or you can join as an individual and meet new mates. Perfect if you are new to the city or just want to meet more people.
- Plus we put the social back into social sport with off field social events every season like Bubble Soccer, Pub Trivia, Oktoberfest and Camping trips etc.
- We think this is more important than ever as more and more people in our city are feeling lonely and isolated and we want to bring fun endorphin releasing social sport back to people’s work weeks. For an hour or so a week, turn Netflix off, stop swiping on Tinder and SportUP your week!
- Sam Bass founded SportUP 6 years ago after he moved to Brisbane as a football mad player but couldn’t find any teams to join. What started with a friendly game with one other player Wilson, has grown into helping 5,837 people having played Netball, Basketball, Soccer or Touch Footy in Brisbane with us.
