Scott Dunlop: Hello!

Welcome to our first Blog! We’re looking forward to communicating more easily with you and providing a convenient way to share your comments, suggestions and opinions…

It’s been a great summer. On June 16, we held a Launch Party in Vancouver. Lots of tennis enthusiasts attended to celebrate with us. During the launch, Electronic Arts featured their Grand Slam Tennis for the Nintendo Wii. You can see pictures of the event here:

In July, we participated in the 78th Everyday Champions Stanley Park Open, North America’s largest public tennis tournament at Stanley Park in Vancouver. Our participation helped boost people’s awareness of Juump in the Metro Vancouver area.

Our beta version has been live for four months, essentially testing in Southern BC but available globally. We are glad to receive such great interest and feedback. You have been very supportive and understanding, and your comments are really appreciated. We respond to each one. Please continue sending us your suggestions and feedback. They help us immensely on our quest to be the site where you can find more people in your neighbourhood to play your favorite activity, starting with tennis!

We are also on Facebook: and Twitter: Hope you’ll become a fan/follower.

Thanks for your enthusiastic support for tennis and Juump. Let’s keep the lines of communication humming!

Cheers to all,
