Both my kids play tennis at a local tennis club. As a parent the club expects me te assist with little tournaments by keeping track of the scores. I hardly ever carry pen and paper with me, so wouldn't it be handy te use my Windows Mobile phone to take care of it.
The games vary from official tennis rules to simple matches where just games are counted. Sometimes simple as the point following 40 gets the game.

I searched for windows mobile software to manage this. No luck...
So i'm trying to find someone who might be interested in writing a little program to keep track of the scores in a tennis game. I was thinking of something like being able to define (per match) what kind of match, just counting games with no sets, or official game-set-match and so on. And then just press (big) buttons fore each point scored on both sides. Screen devided in 2 parts, a third with 2 big buttons, 2 third with points/games scored so far.

Anyone willing to put some energy in this? Might be handy for all the parents and other tennis entousiastics out there....

regards, Jeen

great work, just what i had in mind. alllready very usefull to me.
Some changes/improvements:
I would like the best out of 1 match not to stop at 6 games. Matches for the youngest kids at our club are time-based.
Also, they sometimes skip the Duece-Advantage situation. So at 40-40, the next point gets the game. Maybe an option to uncheck or disable Duece-Advantage?
Hardwarebutton support: Would it be possible to assign a hardware button to each player e.g. left is playerA, right is playerB and maybe up is Undo

As you started a to-do list yourself, let me add a few things. If that's ok with you...
- feedback when point added (acoustic and/or vibrate)
- swap playerA and playerB
but again, very pleased so far!

Wow, Really great. Works like a charm.
My only wishes left are the 2 you already meantioned... undo and show who's serving.
Wish i had the knowledge to do this... Thanks again.
I wonder if this will be used by others
Going to show this to others at the tennis club, see if they might have other suggestions.

Another request i got today... localization
Language files for different languages? heliosdev, if there's a language file i would be glad to translate in Dutch.
But an undo-function is needed most...
