Manage Your Pool Online

About Us

   

Our Mission

Grow interest in sports and entertainment worldwide.

Our History

Easy Office Pools was founded in February 2013. The passion for finding enjoyment in random sporting contests had been instilled in me long before 2013, however.

I had tried fantasy football many times, but as a corporate professional who could never finish my task list I continuously found myself neglecting my obligations of updating my fantasy lineup each week. Eventually I realized that the time commitment required for fantasy football made it simply not worth it. I turned in my fantasy football cleats for good.

In August 2012, my friend Paul turned me on to a great alternative to typical Fantasy Football. He forwarded me an article written by Bill Simmons called You Should Have a NFL Wins Pool. This was such a simple idea and great fun … thank you Bill for writing this. I thought for sure there would be a web solution dedicated to managing this type of pool, but after some googling I realized that there was a gap in the fantasy market for this type of solution. I had been searching for a website idea for months and finally had a solid idea. I love sports and I’m a technology nerd, so building this website was fun for me (except when my sister in law scolded me for tuning her out to work on my project … Laura – I appreciate your patience).

In May 2013, we added PGA Fantasy Golf Pools to our portfolio, where golf fanatics can manage pools for PGA tournaments online. We also added our membership area to provide premium services to office pool organizers.

  1. Hello Sean,

    Im just wondering , is there a way that we can print the entire teams picks. so we can post the picks in our office b/board. User friendly print out. ( I Tried copy paste but it looks ugly and messy.) . Thanks.

    • Hi – we don’t have a print friendly export option. If copying and pasting doesn’t work, can you take a screenshot and print that? Hope that helps. -Sean

    Hello,

    I want to run an office NBA Pool using your site and I have a few questions.
    1) Is this site still active? I attempted to email my questions to easyofficepools@gmail.com but the address was no longer active.
    2) After you manually award NBA team to your players does the website automatically track and calculate how many wins each players has accumulated?
    3) Where can I find out more about your live scoring feature?

    Thanks
    Joel

    • Hi Joel- Yes the site is very much alive and active. We receive and respond to easyofficepools@gmail.com emails every day… not sure why it is showing inactive for you. Website automatically tracks wins for NBA teams. The best way to find out more is to create a pool, assign teams, and then monitor the standings as games are completed. It’s free! Hope that helps. -Sean

    I love the website so far. It is really easy to navigate and it sure made it easy throw together a little competition for the Open this weekend. However, why do you need to delete the team if you want to change something simple like the team name or tiebreaker? I don’t know much about websites, but shouldn’t that be an easy fix? Just curious. Otherwise, this is an awesome site.

    • Hey Jack- thanks for reaching out. That is a fix that many have requested. Currently, we only have the delete then re-add method available because other enhancements and fixes have taken priority. Hopefully we can have a fix in place for team editing sometime soon. – glad to hear you enjoy the site otherwise! – Sean

  4. This site is great.

    Is there a way to have the amateurs on your team?

    This years’ Masters is my first try using Easy Office Pools so i will need to see how well the format is received by the participants before being able to comment on the format options. One area that I anticipate might have a greater impact on the overall outcome than the order of top 20 or 30 finishers will be the scores that will be carried forward by those golfers who do not make the cut as those scores could be quite high (amplified by being counted for the 3rd and 4th rounds) that will likely more than offset the low scores at the top.
    In the past we have done just a money winnings total for Masters Tournament and it works out quite well. Have you ever given any thought to doing a straight money winnings total for a stand a lone tournament like the Masters?
    Thanks,
    Randy

    • Thanks for the feedback! We do have money earnings as an option for sorting on our PGA pools. Definitely can help with the cut golfers but takes away a little excitement for tracking results live. Have fun!

  6. Are payments required by Paypal? What if I want to collect cash from the participants?

    • Hi Mike – the PayPal payment is just charged to the Administrotor in order to use our online services. We don’t facilitate any exchange of money between pool participants and admins. Hope that helps! Thanks – Sean

  7. Does everyone have to have their own email? Or can kids enter without email.

    • Hi Kate –

      You can enter a team on behalf of someone else using your email. Also, we have our free pools that will be available on Monday where the administrator enters everyone’s picks manually.

      Hope that helps. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks!
      Sean

  8. How can the participants in the pool keep up with the scoring the way I see it on my admin screen?

    • Hi Jason,

      Go to the View page, enter your pool id, and grab the url of the results page to share with your participants. Hope that helps. Thanks,
      Sean

  9. Hey Guys,

    Just wanted to say THANKS for hosting the Masters pool this year. There weren’t any other sites out there that made it as easy and free!!

    Thanks again and keep up the good work!
