Kickball player banned from using Tinder after she used the app to recruit teammates

This is a clever way to use Tinder, as long as you don’t get caught.

Rhode Island kickball player Gianna Pecchia was banned from the dating app for life after the service discovered she was using the app to recruit teammates, according to adult kickball league Clubwaka.

A tinder spokesperson said yesterday (May 11th) that the company reviewed its decision and found that Pecchia was “banned appropriately.”

Pecchia tells Clubwaka.com that she found 25 players through the app, including 18 for her team and another seven to help fill out other rosters in her league.

She says she would host “dinner meet ups with people who were interested so that they could meet me and other people from the league.”

Tinder guidelines state that “soliciting other users is prohibited” and that “It’s fine to invite your matches to something that you’re doing, but if the purpose of your profile is to advertise your event or business, non-profit, political campaign, contest, or to conduct research, we may delete your account.”
