Hereford Charity Pool League
LeagueRepublic has totally revolutionised my workflow, freeing up lots of time for me to concentrate on running the league...
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 has been using LeagueRepublic as our website provider for 5 years and we have gone from strength to strength during that time...
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!!!!!

We have no hesitation in recommending the LeagueRepublic system to all leagues looking for a way to administer their league...
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.
