They say some businesses start by accident, some by clever design, Squadnet was actually born out of a sick bed...

In March 2020 Chris Barton was lying in bed for weeks struggling to recover from a debilitating virus and had lots of time on his hands to think.
Squadnet founder
One thing that was frustrating him was the inability of his son Hamish to effectively train in his sport Taekwondo. Hamish had just returned from medaling at the US Open Taekwondo championship and was not able to return to normal training with the new COVID lockdowns in place.
As well as building a home gym, Chris lent on his years of playing sport and his close involvement in sporting clubs to come up with the idea of creating a new online training tool for coaches and athletes.
Chris jumped on the phone to his good friend and developer, Vuong and Squadnet was born.
After many months of market research and chatting with clubs they discovered that there was a broader opportunity and gap in the market for a modern app, one that could assist clubs, coaches and trainers more effectively engage and communicate with their communities.
Squadnet pivoted in this direction and began testing with sporting clubs and rebuilt their app specifically to enhance club communication and member engagement and started to gain some real momentum.
The journey has only just begun for Squadnet and they are proud to be growing their business out of Western Sydney.
When not working on the app you will find Chris & Vuong in the Gym or working on their jump shots...
