About PlaceFull


Discovering & Booking a space should be easy

Our founder was frustrated by the difficulty of renting a court for his 4 sons' basketball practices. He began exploring the idea of building a facility from the ground up replete with simple booking options and easy scheduling.

An epic idea, but was it the real solution? What if there was a way to search for any and all available gyms? And through that same discovery tool, what if there was a way to book instantly? Such a tool would be incredibly useful and applicable to so many different scenarios. What else could people book instantly?

Parties, wedding venues, tasting tours, team outings, classes, sporting events, gyms...

PlaceFull is the solution to the challenge of finding the perfect space — an online tool created to simplify the experience of discovering and creating memorable experiences.
