Details on the TROL System

Hi, My Name is Bruce Leister, and I have been utilising computers to process match results since I wrote my first Ladders program on a WANG 2200 in WANG Basic in 1979.

I am a tennis player and volunteer, who has been helping in Tennis Competition administration since 1987, and the current system, while of a commercial quality is made available at a "volunteer" rate to assist other volunteers.

I provide the software for a one-time installation/customisation price. There is an annual fee to cover this site's web-hosting costs, software licenses, and a small annual support fee.

Software bug fixes, and all minor enhancements are included in the annual support fee.

Additional support is also available on either an annual retainer, or a per incidence charge.

The software is a two part system:

  1. A Windows component to setup the season (competitions, sections, matches and players), and process results.
  2. A Web-based component to allow viewing of ladders, match results, player statistics, and also online match result entry.
    They utilise open source software, PHP and MySQL, together with various Javascript libraries, and PHP add-on classes.

The software has been written to assist Tennis Associations run competitions, and currently is used by Eleven Tennis Associations in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
