    Awesome Ben

    Ben was very generous with his time and made a special video for my dad. He absolutely loved it and I appreciate it very much.

Example Shoutout

Rob is always raving about how straight he hits a golf ball, yet he always loses. Be great if you could explain that something isn't adding up - he needs to focus more on winning and less on chirping. Be great if you could gently put him in his place!

Example good luck shoutout

My mate Jason starts a new job next week and he's really nervous. Please wish him luck and let him know how you manage your nerves. We love watching you play and think you're clutch under pressure!

Frequently asked questions

How do I book a personalised video message on Swysh?

Find your favourite sports star or celebrity on our website, and follow the easy steps to complete the booking. We’ll take care of the rest! To search for your favourite Star, click here.

How do I receive the personalised video?

When the video is ready, we'll send it to you by SMS and email. If it's a gift, you can keep it until the special day - it's yours to keep and share forever!

What should I book a personalised video for?

A Swysh video is a great gift - ask your favourite sports star or celebrity for a happy birthday message, to wish your partner happy anniversary, wish Dad a happy Father's Day, cheer someone up or just some general banter to share with your friends. You might also want a video for yourself - ask a question or a tip to help you with your game. Swysh is all about having fun!

Remember, each video is about 20-60 seconds so be very clear with your instructions.

The views and contents of each video belong to the Swysh Star only and are in no way endorsed by any club or association.

How long will it take to receive my video?

The short answer is, it depends on the star. Most videos are sent back within 5-7 days (some give the option of getting it done within 48 hours - check out our Express category!). Sometimes Swysh Stars are busy with games or other commitments so it can take a bit longer. If you do not receive your video within a week, we will give you the option of cancelling and receiving a full refund (unless you choose to wait a little longer).

Are there rules for the video request?

We want Swysh to be fun, but we also want to make sure the stars are comfortable on the platform. Please ensure all instructions are appropriate and respectful - our rules can be found in our User Terms.

Note, all requests are subject to the approval of both Swysh and the Star. If a request is rejected, you will receive a full refund.

Can I keep my Swysh video forever?

Yes, of course! You'll receive your Swysh video message via a link where you can download the video and keep it forever.
