Web site now charging for team management
 
The team captains at my club have been using TennisOne to manage their teams for years. Tennisone just started charging a fee to use their site for this purpose. Consequently, now several captains are starting to use other means like the Tennislink web page. Nothing seems to compare in quality to Tennisone, so it will be interesting to see if we adapt to the less-useful, less user friendly, and free sites.

TennisPoint is pretty good too. We've been using that one for a while now.

Not surprised that TennisOne started charging based on how many captains used it.

IMHO it had good functionality but was a bit clunky on the interface.

They were using because it was decent and free. Team management is not something overtly complicated and many captains do fine without any management software or website. I would imagine that alot of teams will now use something else.

Once the captains started using TennisOne, at my club, and getting away from emails and phone calls, they would never go back to the manual system.

Another easy way is to use shared Google docs.

Yup. I never liked Tennisone. I use a shared GoogleDrive spreadsheet to captain.

I find the automated emails of Tennisone to be the only advantage of Tennisone, but they create more problems than they are worth.

Pay for Tennisone? They should pay me.

tennis team management web sites
 
I have used TennisPoint.com and NetCord.com - both seem to do the job.
