Why VolleyWrite? (June 2018)

We’ve all heard that humans are

creatures of habit.

But in the last half of the 20th century, humans have also become

creatures of convenience.

Why do I say that?:

1. Although I am physically capable of getting out of my car to open and close my garage door, I have a garage door opener do it for me.

2. Although I can get off my butt and walk about 4 steps to the television, you’d better believe that I use a remote control!

We already can’t imagine life without these conveniences!

Nobody whips out a pen and paper to do math any more – they use a calculator

…because it’s fast, accurate and convenient.

That same argument can be made about VolleyWrite!

Let us know what you think!

VolleyWrite: Scorer or Score Keeper?

When we tell people that we have created VolleyWrite Volleyball Scoring Software, the response is, “Oh, so you do stats”.  When we first started, NCAA Women, the NFHS and USA Volleyball did not have the same title for the person keeping score.  “Scorekeeper” was commonly used.  Now, however, all three of these associations do refer to the person at the scoring table as the “Scorer”. So don’t get confused!  The important this is that you are scoring – with VolleyWrite!

Tennessee State Volleyball Tournament 2017 – Success!

Volleyball scorer using VolleyWriteWhat a tournament!  The TSSAA again used VolleyWrite to score all of its state final tournament volleyball matches  on October 17, 18 and 19 in Murfreesboro.  It was ideal to use VolleyTourney to provide live scores for the matches, especially since the matches on the first two days were played on four courts in three different venues!  Take a look at the results at www.VolleyTourney.com.

Congrats to the winners from all five divisions: Baylor, Webb, Brentwood, Portland and Berean Christian!  That was some exciting volleyball!

Thanks to VolleyWrite, all of the excitement was on the court and not at the scoring table.  If you’re not using VolleyWrite yet, download the free trial of the Windows version and check it out!
