    Do any of you use any team managing softwares to keep stats, results, or do scheduling on your league teams? Or if any of you create your own programs or spreadsheets to accomplish the same thing. I know our sport is not really known for much stat analysis and the idea might be border line geeky, but you be surprise at what you can find out after looking at the big picture. The one thing I've heard of is mytennisgroup.com that keeps track of availabilities and automatically send out reminders.

    If you are in NorCal you can use the NorCal site for availability and scheduling. And the historical stats feature is pretty addicting. I can find the scores to any match ever between any two players.

    Are you referring to the tennislink website? I know thats a database for a lot of matches. But what I'm referring to is keeping track of your own players W-L, getting their %'s, using stats to see who they are successful partnering with. Of course all of these are above and beyond the duties of a USTA captain, but I'm kinda calling out all the stat rats on TW.

    NorCal has it's own front end to tennislink, which does the player specific W-L % and who they are successful partnering with and how they do against certain opponents. But it's not available outside of Northern California. I gotta admit, when I look at tennislink I kinda wonder how the rest of the country puts up with that.

    No, I don't use anything like that. I can remember over the course of a year who partners well and who tends to win. At year end, there is turnover, so what came before isn't especially predictive of what will happen in the future.

    I'm in norcal like cak and our frontend really is addictive. Before a tournament or during a season, I can sit there for hours going through opponents past results to analyze the other players.

    Does any of the other areas have something similiar or do you guys really just use tennislink?

    The only time I go to tennislink is when a player gets DQ'ed. Norcal overturns everything to a 6-0, 6-0 loss but tennislink shows the actual score with a DQ next to the score.

    Can you Nor. Cal people provide a link for me to check out? I am curious about this front end and also wonder at the sametime why this isn't implemented on the other regions.

    here you go snowpuppy. i didn't want to link mine since it's so terrible and i don't want the whole forum to see. so i linked to a random club in norcal. :)

    http://www.ustanorcal.com/organization.asp?id=196

    just click on a team name and then from there, you can click on team match scores and players. not too different from the tennislink pages except when we log in, we can set our availability but that is only visible for team members.

    when you click on individual player links (from the team page), you will see how much more organized it is over the tennislink page. click on anything that looks like a link for more details.

    the tournament section on a player page is better since it doesn't show all the tourney results in one big table but separates it and shows what round a player finished.

    Thanks Jonnyjack. I see what you mean. This is a stat rat's dream. There is much more to work with in terms of scoping out your competition. I still don't know why USTA can't just implement in all regions but it I had to guess probably because of money.
