brandnew vacant amator tennis lounge opens and waits
it's a great software more than 17,000 lines of Perl code first published under GNU license three years ago on SourceForge (tclub-1.000). So its both powerful and free program written by a tennis amator player for other tennis amator players. Many times the new features of it were requested so that to make it more suitable for them. Currently it runs almost flawlessly, bugs have been traced by a hundred of everyday users. Its not just a demo program that I intended to show; its a working software that serves the needs of people. You can still use it as a demo to get understanding of it by visiting http://motivation.ru, selecting English for interface (right below the globe icon) and entering straight into Moscow location with login and password - both - word "visitatore". One of the features is publishing a proposal of the match using a given interface (with email auto-submitted to other clubbers), waiting for candidates of opponents, then selecting one for the match - this is a key service; it has a statistics of 7 games played upon 10 proposals, which is a rather good (70%) to a mere asking if someone is here about to play. Other features are: tournaments spreadsheets, courts wiki database (one gets full knowledge of tennis sites in a city), virtual toss, voting machine, profiles listing, untraditional but very convenient forum, chat room ("cafe"), matches reports with live comments input, publishing sale/buy gear offerings - all this is across the start page menu. So basically it's all-in-one tennis club management software including a working court reservation interface in case some court owners were interested to get all those people play on their courts. However complicated it may look technically, it looks quite simple the other way: you come, you play, you talk, you improve tennis skills as your club rating rises. Yes, we do have a club rating which this program also calculates. We also have three leagues based on this rating, and tournaments are organised within leagues. All this couldn't be accomplished as easy as this program makes it possible.
