Wotscore supports tennis leagues and ladders of either singles or doubles.
The tennis leagues are based on a season (of which the entire history of previous seasons and charts can be viewed), and a 3 points for a win system (or alternatively 2 points for a win). The leagues can be setup so if a player is away they can avoid a season and stay in the same division when they return (for instance box leagues).
An administrator first creates the tennis league and then invites all the players into the via email (or facebook) through the site. They can then sort and order the players into divisions of arbitrary size using a drag and drop tool. If the divisions are large enough the administrator can also set the promotion and relegation zone. Once the end date has been set, the league can be started. The teams can then arrange matches through the site and make bookings for the courts on the wotscore calendar and enter the results. The software will automatically do the points calculation and perform promotion and relegation at the end of the season.
Here are some basic reasons to use wotscore over pen and paper or a spreadsheet:
The tennis points system works on the following by the number of matches played (for best of 3):
Where x is the games won/2 to a max of 5 pts
So for a typical score of 6:4 6:3 the winner would be awarded 10 points, and the loser 7/2 or 3 points. For the match score of 6:4 3:6 10:8 the winner would be awared 8 points and the loser 6 points. Please note this is the default for tennis, there are other points systems included in Wotscore you can choose such as 3 points for a win, or just a count of all sets won.
