My name is Mark Farmer, Secretary of the Hereford Charity Pool League, I have been using LeagueRepublic to administer our league for 8 years/16 seasons.
We have 7 divisions of 10 teams, so 70 teams in total, which equates to around 700 individual players.
LeagueRepublic has totally revolutionised my workflow, freeing up lots of time for me to concentrate on running the league rather than spending all my time with paperwork, Excel documents and making phone calls.
The system is fantastic for team or league administrators. We run all 7 divisions on the site, and have taken advantage of the truly excellent text result service. This means that team captains can text a result into the website and it updates the league table instantly. This saves me hours of work each week fetching scorecards , updating tables and having to decipher poor handwriting!
The administrator/s have total control of allowing results, either setting the site to need confirmation from an admin before the result shows up, or as I do, allowing the result to go up instantly. If there is a conflict in results between two teams the system flags this up for the admin to deal with. Perfect!
Around two years ago we decided to expire our old league website and move over fully to LeagueRepublic, we just didn't require the old site anymore as League Republic has everything covered.
We have also become a 'paperless' league, no need for continually printing off copies of league tables and delivering or posting them to our 45 venues, teams and pubs just print off league tables or cup draws as they need them.
We have a news section, galleries and knockout competition pages, as well as the superb league table standings pages for each division. It's the first port of call for all players when they need to see league tables, cup draws or news from our pool league.
League Republic has great customer service, if you get stuck then fire off a contact message or email and they get back to you quickly to sort things out.
In all honesty, I just couldn't function without LeagueRepublic. I have no qualms at all about recommending them.
SOUTHPORT POOL LEAGUES WEBSITE
- Southport Pool Leagues has been using LeagueRepublic as our website provider for 5 years and we have gone from strength to strength during that time... Read more
LeagueRepublic is an awesome template for any small sports league, either club or pub based, which otherwise couldn't afford the cost of building their own website or like me wouldn't have the knowledge of how to set one up. Southport Pool Leagues has been using LeagueRepublic as our website provider for 5 years and we have gone from strength to strength during that time. OK so 250,000 hits might not seem much but for a small league we don't think so. With 36 teams playing in two seasons, winter and summer plus a singles league with 3 -4 divisions, players can view fixtures, tables and competition details as well as statistics and news. As an administrator, the template allows me to produce season fixtures at the touch of a button which previously would have taken me days to configure. It's simple to use and on the odd occasion I need help the support from LR is spot on. The feedback from the players, who use the site regularly to keep up with what's going on in the league, is fantastic - they just love it!!!! Highly recommended!!!!!
Blackburn & District Pool League
- We have no hesitation in recommending the LeagueRepublic system to all leagues looking for a way to administer their league... Read more
LeagueRepublic is the pinnacle of sports administration systems and is the ultimate way to run any league!
After taking over the running of the leagues in February 2013, we immediately identified the need to get important and up to date information to our members quickly. Our site at the time required updating manually which was time consuming and was therefore often out of date and also looked bland.
We decided to try LeagueRepublic, having previously played in leagues that also used them. With the new upcoming season only a few weeks away we didn't think that we would be able to have a new site setup in time, however once we began inputting data it came together so quickly that we were able to use it for the new season.
The support and feedback offered is second to none, all email queries are answered quickly and efficiently every time. You never feel that you are on your own either in setting up or when making changes to your site.
Blackburn and District Pool Leagues currently operate two leagues within the East Lancashire region playing on Sundays and Mondays, our main league on Monday nights currently consists of 4 divisions with 40 teams and upwards of 360 players.
We have no hesitation in recommending the LeagueRepublic system to all leagues looking for a way to administer their league and those who also want a league website.
The league site looks both modern and clean, with a simple user interface for anyone visiting the site. The SMS results facility works so well that we now have the league tables fully updated by the following morning, a fantastic feature for all our members.
With the new site up and running we were approached by a current sponsor who had questions regarding the new online advertising opportunities on our site. After a discussion the company decided to increase their sponsorship, solely down to the way we could now promote their business on our website.
The statistics reporting feature is one of the most useful as we run individual merits prizes for each division, we simply input match results and the stats pages are automatically updated, a superb time saving feature easily customisable to suit different needs.
The venue location facility with Google Maps integration is extremely useful, as all league venues can be shown on the site. The news section not only lets you keep members informed, but also lets you tag it to the relevant section so that it reaches the people you want it to reach.
Retford Pool League
- LeagueRepublic is a great tool for any sporting league looking to use something simple, yet looks really good and is easy to access.... Read more
Retford Pool League has been established for many years now and is a very popular league amongst many people who play within the league. We have teams playing from Retford and its surrounding villages, which form a very competitive and friendly league. We run 2 seasons which comprises of a winter league, which runs from October - May, and a summer league which runs from June - September. We roughly have around 24 teams that compete, but sometimes this can vary depending on the season and the interest in some teams playing. We have 3 divisions in a winter league with 8 teams in each division, and we have 3 groups in a summer league campaign which comprises of 7 teams.
We are always looking for more teams each year, but the league as whole is very healthy and has a very bright future. The league has been run by a few committee's over the years but as time has gone on the league has developed. This is in no small part down to LeagueRepublic and its functionality within the site. The current committee has been together for around 2 years now and has the passion and interest in the game to move our league forward as much as possible.
We have been using LeagueRepublic for around 4 years now and it has been a great tool to help us manage and promote our league. Before we started to use LeagueRepublic we had an old fashioned system whereby the committee would print out fixtures, standings & results to all teams and venues, but with the age of internet we can use the league republic facility which not only looks professional but we can reach even more people than we ever could before.
The best features on LeagueRepublic has to be the way things are laid out. You get the chance to make the page your own by putting in your own images and text to really professionalize the way the site looks. LeagueRepublic is a great tool for any sporting league looking to use something simple, yet looks really good and is easy to access.

I have found it easy to use and have found when I have been unsure how to do anything the support team have been very helpful following request for help.

We have seen a massive rise in interest in the league since setting the site pages up and have 3 sponsors that all contribute the funding of our league to have a small advert placed on these pages. We as a pool league are very satisfied and happy with what we have with LeagueRepublic and would strongly recommend any sporting league wanting to advance and create a great communication to its members and teams to make use of this superb web site. We are 100 % satisfied... Many thanks to LeagueRepublic!!

Firstly I would like to say how great the LeagueRepublic site is!! We first started using the site back in 2010 after a quick "Google" found LeagueRepublic.
We are a pool league that consists of 26 teams spread over three divisions. We aim to be the best and friendliest pool league in London.
I was amazed to find how user friendly the site was. Within days, we had a fully operational league, with fixtures, league tables and even player stats! When version 3 came out, it turned our fully operational website into something that looked classy and modern! The site looks even better now and have already received some great feedback from our players.
