The Secret to Keeping Up With Sport

Summer has finally arrived! More and more people are getting ready to showcase their physical progress over the last months and show off their summer bodies - myself included. With so many working towards looking their best during everyone’s favourite season, many start a new sport or intensify their workout routines. In fact, I’ve tried this several times myself, but found it quite challenging to keep up.

“This time around though,  I was determined to challenge myself to make the most of this summer… and I found a way to do it.”

I was recently introduced to CrossFit through a few friends. The gym offers daily classes at different times, providing flexibility for anyone with a busy schedule. I remember when I first started going to the sessions, it was difficult for me to select the most suitable classes offered at the best times. In addition to that, I would have to check in with my girlfriends to make sure everyone was up for the class and available. This became one of the biggest problems for everyone: streamlining our availability so we would never forget or miss a class again, or cancel workouts last minute. I noticed that organisational problems have become the norm today, and how important communication is to lead an optimal life, problem-free.

Thankfully, Looping came into the picture! The all-in-one calendar solution allowed me to create a sports group with my girlfriends and manage my personal events that I could easily share, providing seamless access and overview of our weekly work-out schedule. The best part? The app enables a chat function that is available for each event. This feature allowed us to communicate with one another in real-time! This summer, say goodbye to forgetful towel moments and last minute changes to meeting points, and say hello to a new and improved you!

It’s a Date: See you At Wimbledon!

Wimbledon is one of the most sought after tennis tournaments that takes place annually in England. Running between July 1st and July 14th, 2019, the Wimbledon championships are the third glam slam of the year in a four-tournament series. What makes the Wimbledon extra special this year, is the fact that for the first time Wimbledon will feature a tie-break at 12-all in the final set to eliminate the marathon matches that have affected the player performance and scheduling in previous years. Furthermore, a highly-anticipated £70 million retractable roof will be placed on Court One for the first time after three years have been spent on this project.

Did you know that Wimbledon requires its players to wear white clothes?

Coined as one of the world’s most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world, the matches are played on grass - in contrast to the Grandslavian tournaments where players compete on a different field. In addition, Wimbledon is the tournament that rewards winners with the highest prize money. In 2014, a record amount of £25M was paid out.

Like every year, the Wimbledon tournament is played during the first two weeks of July, they last exactly 14 days. The tournament is organised for both men and women at the same time and three types of games are played: singles (7 rounds), doubles (6 rounds) and mixed doubles (6 rounds). Roger Federer (Switzerland) and Martina Navrátilová (Czech Republic America) are the most successful players of the Wimbledon tournament, winning eight times the tournament and nine times the ladies’ singles respectively.

The Wimbledon 2019: Men’s list of players includes favourites Novak Djokovic (SRB), Roger Federer (SUI) and Rafael Nadal (ESP), while the women’s list of players includes: Ashleigh Barty (AUS), Naomi Osaka (JPN), and Karolina Plisova (CZE) who is a heavy favourite to win. The question remains: Can defending champions Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber defend their titles?

If you’ve never seen this prestigious tournament before, we recommend you check it out this summer and find out which tennis players you’re a fan of! Looping ensures that you don’t miss a single match! All Wimbledon matches are listed in the group “Grand Slam Turniere.”
