Day Course


Electronic Scoring CPD Module

Scoring electronically has become ever more popular as a method of scoring and this workshop covers the use of Play Cricket Scorer Pro (PCS Pro®).

Most scoring software is intuitive to use but many of the packages PCS Pro contains advanced features and customisation, that may not be so obvious Whilst they are all easy to use, the most important thing to know, is how to correct things when the inevitable mistakes occur.

This one-day workshop will take you through scoring using PCS Pro from setting up a match to printing out a scorecard or a player’s wagon wheel and will give you some handy hints on how to make amendments as quickly as possible, while play continues.

You will need to bring your own laptop with the PCS Pro software pre-installed.
