Within Tournament Desk, TDs can create default scorecard templates individually. This functionality allows the templates to be created by National, Section and/or District staff to be used instead of using the hard coded defaults we use for all team templates.
The custom template drop down box will be populated with scorecard templates that have been created by either National, Section of District depending on the level of the tournament.
As section/district staff you can choose to enforce the rules you set in the scorecard, for example - gender and age rules. This is a feature that is enabled in Serve Control - Level Configuration.
