Communities (especially virtual communities) of Interest have recently been the focus of substantial consideration within academic literature. This paper addresses Communities of Interest within the Leisure Industry and provides an innovative value added service concept for mobile coordination support for individuals. Thus it extends the discussion to mobile communities, which in fact leads to a hybrid-solution. After briefly presenting the state of the art of IT in the leisure industry and describing the empirical aspect of the project objectives we introduce the MCOR (Mobile Community Online Reservation) system. Finally we discuss design considerations and the blueprint of our future research.
