Before selecting players:
After selecting players:
1. Change any pre-selected player names for any of the sets if necessary, such as when a substitute has replaced an injured player. To change a name, click on the double arrows to the right of the name you wish to change. A pop-up window will appear with all the players registered for that team.
3. In the Match Comments box at the bottom of the page, enter any and all relevant match information such as:
4. Click the 'Save scorecard' button and you're done! But if you need to make any changes or additions, just click the 'Edit' button.
The status of your match will now be listed as "unconfirmed". This is correct. See below for an explanation of match status.
At the top of each set is an item that says 'Correct score'. If some sets are partially or totally incomplete, click on the double arrows on the right of 'Correct score' for the relevant set.
This will reveal a pop-up menu:
Select 'Incomplete' when, due to a washout or heatout, the set was not played or completed. Enter the score of all games played in any incompleted set.
Select 'Home Retired' or 'Away Retired' if a player retires injuried and no substitute took her place. Enter the score of the games actually played. The system will automatically add the additional score to the total score of the team receiving the forfeit. For example, if the game score was 5-3 when a home team player retired injuried and no substitute took her place, enter '5-3' not '5-8' as the set score. The system will add 5 games to the away team's overall game score.
Select 'Home Forfeited' or 'Away Forfeited' when the entire set was forfeited (ie, no games were completed).
Do NOT enter any scores for a complete forfeit, washout or heatout, ie when no games at all were played for the entire match.
In the case of a forfeit, the system will automatically assign 48 games to the team receiving the forfeit and 0 to the team giving the forfeit. The Record Secretary will manually adjust the score for the team giving the forfeit from 0 to 24 games as per By-law 11b.
Instead of entering scores, click 'Mark not played / incomplete'.
In the pop-up window, select the appropriate choice and click the 'SELECT' button to save your choice.
It won't look as if anything has changed, but scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a note saying that the 'match will be cancelled with the following reason…".
Add notes regarding the forfeit/washout/heatout in the Match Comment box. Then click the 'Save scorecard' button.
You will then see that the match marked as a forfeit/washout/heatout. If you wish to make any changes, click on the Edit button.
