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

This is just a quick implementation! Supports best of 1, 3 or 5 sets.

update Feb-14-2009
switch between horizontal and vertical layout (in the settings or dpad enter)
implemented undo function for the current set (right menu or dpad up)
show who's serving by changing the label background color to light blue
language support (English, Dutch, German)

update Feb-01-2009
Tie-Break implemented
Settings-Form to set the player's name, use deuce/advantage, infinite single set match, vibrate on click
swap players
hardware button support: left: player 1, right: player 2, down: swap players

Uninstall the previous version manually. Not needed to this manually from this release on.

improvements:
change look and feel
add application icon

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!

New version is up, please check post #2!
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...

Please add Best of Two

In our junior tennis contest we play on two winning sets. Big thank you.

BTW if you want, then I can prepare czech language...

Can't you just select 'best of three' and stop after the second set?
You'll find the current language files in the installation directory. Look into one of the existing ones for the order of the words and add your new file (of type .txt) at the same place.
Tell me if this worked. And in case you need to install it on a lot of devices, I can integrate the language file in a new cab.

Czech special character set is not supported (ěščřžýáíé), nevertheless it works.

Of course I can use "Best of Three" for two winning sets method.

I made another version of Czech language :).
Unicode is not supported by fact... Silly Czech special characters :rolleyes:!

But I used the commas above the letters :D ! I do not know how it is called, I think characters with -> ´ <- these strange things. Like "á", "í", "ý" and so on. The letters with hooks (I mean "š", "ž" "ě" and similar ultra-weird characters), of course, are not supported (yet? :)).

So here is the contents of the file:

Code:
Nabídka;
Nová hra;
Nová hra - 3 sady;
Nová hra - 5 sad;
Prohodit hráce;
Nastavení;
O aplikaci;
Konec;
OK;
Zrusit;
Zpet;
Hrác A;
Hrác B;
Pouzít Shoda/Výhoda;
Neomezená první sada;
Vibrace;
Jazyk;
Vertikalní rozlození;
And here is the file itself:
