With the new tennis season just around the corner, we’ve created a list of tips that will help you start using iOnCourt to track team matches.

Tip 1 – Sign Up

  1. Sign up for a free iOnCourt account at ioncourt.com 
  2. Download the iOS app on App Store or the Android app on Google Play.

Tip 2 – Create a Team

  1. Open the iOnCourt app, click on the Menu button found in the upper right corner of your screen, and select My Teams.

2. Locate the Add button in the lower right corner of your screen and click on it. A new screen will open automatically, allowing you to enter your team’s name and a one or two character team abbreviation, select a color for your team, and choose the type of your team. Once you are done,click Create to add your team to the My Teams list on your app.

Tip 3 – Manage Roster and Lineup

  1. To add players, select the top-right menu icon, then My Players, and Add button to add your team’s players. Once you have filled out all the fields, click Save

2. To create your lineup, go to My Teams and select the team you want to create a lineup for, and click on Lineups. 

3. Then, click on Add lineup to choose a template and use the appropriate college or high school dual match lineup configuration. The lineup can be easily removed by clicking on the Remove button.  

4. Click on the Add symbol to add players to your doubles and singles lineup positions. If you need to remove a player, simply swipe left and click on Remove. The lineup order can be changed by selecting the icon to the left of a player’s name, then dragging and dropping the player(s) to the desired lineup location.

Tip 4 – Create Team Match

  1. To set up a Team match, click on the Add button located at the lower right of the Team matches display. Add the start date and time, home and away teams, a lineup template, and click Submit. If you want to exchange lineups with your opponent leave home or away team blank and you will have the option to invite them in the next step. 

2. To invite an opponent, tap the Invite button and enter the opponent’s phone number associated with an iOnCourt account. 

Select the invited team, which can be done by the owner of the match or the invited team.

3. To apply lineup, select the More option found in the Tracker Bar and click on Apply lineup option. Changes to the lineup can be made and updated once you go to the team details menu and select the Apply lineup option again.

Tip 5 – Assign Team Match Tracker(s)

Once you’ve decided on the person you want to appoint as a Tracker, you will need to send an invite to that person. Here is how:

  1. Find the Trackers icon in the Tracker bar and click on it. Select the Add Tracker and type the name and the phone number of your tracker. Click Save

2. The Tracker will receive a push notification, and the team match will appear in the list of their matches. After the Tracker accepts the invitation, they will receive permissions to add individual matches and start tracking the match you want them to track. You can add as many trackers as you want, and you can also remove trackers by clicking on the Delete button. 

With iOnCourt, you can assign a different tracker for each match, which can be especially useful if you want to have detailed stats (point by point and advanced stats) or if you want to assign a referee in the chair to track the match.

Best of luck in the upcoming tennis season!

Happy Match Tracking!
