How does it work?

  • Ask Xysti where you can play a sport, e.g squash "Where can I play squash tomorrow afternoon in Uxbridge?"
  • Xysti will return with a suggestion of a venue near the location and a time.

Interested in helping out?

I'm looking for anyone who might be interested in coming on board to help out. I don't want to call it a "co-founder" because Xysti is not (and probably never will be) a startup. I'm looking for a UX Designer (who has experience and knowledge of chatbot interaction design) and a marketing/branding person. Also, ideally you will be located in London; most of the work will be done remotely but will probably be necesary to meet up occassionally. Also, the imin API, which powers Xysti only works in the UK, and mostly only London, right now. That being said, if you're located elsewhere and you're the right candidate, I will not rule you out. You will also be passionate about getting people more active - the most important bit! If this is you, email me at tom@tomoakley.me.

What's with the name?

Xysti was an architectural term used in Ancient Greece for the covered portico of a gymnasium, where exercises took place in the winter and bad weather. I wanted a name that was obscure enough that it caught people's attention, but still had something to do with sports and physical activity, and that didn't sound techy. Also, the domain name was available!
