MB Bowling Results Service
An on-line system to enter and process Crown Green Bowling Results; using a PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet.
Each Club is issued with a password which teams use to log in and enter their match results.
No password is required to view results.
Increasingly, results are entered from the green using smart phones or tablets.
There is no typing involved, just click to select the names and scores from lists alongside the scorecard.
The results are in effect self scrutinised, because they are freely available to everyone as soon as an entry is saved.
The Home and Away Captain have up to 5 days to make corrections.
The Administrator may enter or change results at any time.
Match Results, Tables and Averages are displayed for Individuals, Teams and Divisions.
Little or no typing is required to set up the system, as all information can be transferred directly from an existing Website, Excel or Word Document.
Once set up the Administrator generates the fixtures on line by selecting from a few options.
The fixture generator insures if 2 teams from the same club are in the same division, they always play each other the first week of both halves.
Fixtures may be set for the reverse to be the next week, the second half or any other combination.
Teams play a maximum of 2 consecutive home or away fixtures per season, which are not scheduled in the first or last 2 weeks.
The system caters for matches played on a different day, when 3 teams share a green.
The administrator has full control of settings for all relevant scoring and player options.
All data is automatically backed up and everything is carried out online with no files held on the Administrator's computer.
The system may be embedded in or linked from an existing website; or a basic site set up at no extra cost.
The programme processes results for Multiple Leagues including singles, pairs or any combination within the same organisation.
To avoid duplicating registered player lists; a single list, on one page shows how many times and in which Leagues a player has played.
Results and tables can be emailed directly to newspapers.
The live system was first used in 2011 by 2 pensioner Leagues who successfully entered their results from the first week.
The system may be modified to individual League requirements.
