Isn’t it about time that there was a beautiful mobile app for sports?
The ZenSports team is obsessed about one thing -- creating a delightful experience for finding and connecting with others to play sports. We know first hand the pain points that players go through in trying to find who is available in their area to play with, or which leagues and tournaments are happening. We also understand that you want to be able to broadcast yourself from your matches, see how your friends are doing in their competitions, track all of your stats, and compare yourself to others locally and worldwide.
That’s why we’ve developed the most beautiful and delightful mobile app experience specifically tailored to sports. Most other sports technologies and websites look like they were developed in 1995. Not ZenSports. Our team has a combined 15 years of sports and technology experience. So not only do we understand how sports work, we also understand how to build beautiful technology products.
We’re passionate about sports and passionate about you.

Etan Mizrahi-ShalomCo-Founder & CTO
Etan handles all of ZenSports' Android and iOS front-end development, as well as the app's back-end development. Before joining ZenSports, Etan had designed and run a handicap system based on the ELO system, which he used for pool tournaments all over the Bay area. While doing so, he built and maintained a full stack application used to calculate players' handicaps and a website in which players could look up just about any possible statistic they could ever wish for.
Growing up, Etan was always a sports fan. At one time he was able to name the starting lineup for every team in MLB as well as even some of their top minor league prospects. He was an avid soccer player from grade school through high school, and currently keeps his competitiveness going through pool, where he is one of the better players in the Bay Area.
