My Tennis Group, wip ..

MTG is a site for tennis junkies: captains, players and pros to schedule matches/courts, manage their teams, etc., just everything tennis. I found this site out at the captain’s meeting from the Metro League Coordinator (sorry for the screaming e-mail and thanks for keeping cool under the fire!!). A friend did a search also recommended it.

I’ve been trying it and found it to be useful (pls keep in mind that I’m new at organizing an USTA league): pros out weights the cons. Some features may not be what I think it means to be, so pls take my random thoughts and observations with a grain of salt:

The Pros:

  • The set up is easy
  • The Calendar page is useful and functional
  • The Availability page is useful and functional
  • Line up is a breeze
  • Adding additional match(es) – like playoffs – is easy
  • It tells me what to do on court – geeeze wizzz believe me

The Cons:

  • The calendar is only a holding cell: you can’t create an event on the calendar directly like with gmail or yahoo’s. The events will show up once you created them elsewhere. For example, from MyGroups/Manage Groups.
  • Too many e-mail spams: (not sure if there is On and Off option)
    1. I normally receive double confirmations from the players.
  • There are glitches: the Availability page isn’t showing everything
  • When entering match info, the ending of the time of the match won’t adjust accordingly – I think set the default to one hour would be practical.
  • Once I scheduled a match, it offers following two options:

    – E-mail all team members the lineup

    – Save but do NOT e-mail all team members the lineup

    E-mail line up will send message out immediately and Save option will not save it for your for long: sends out the following day

  • It doesn’t cook me dinner or improve my forehand .. darn .. I knew there is a catch 🙂

More later .. WIP …
