    Scorbly supports other score options for common league formats such as Juniors and College. Go below to the Advanced Settings section for more detail .

    Mounting the Scoreboard

    On the center back of the scoreboard there is a ¼” mounting point that can attach to any standard camera mounting gear. A thumbscrew is included for hanging the scoreboard on a court fence. The single attach point allows you to hang between seams of wind screens found on many court fences. Screw the thumbscrew into the 1/4" mounting point and then hang the scoreboard by guiding the thumbscrew head through a link of the fence.

    There are also a vast array of other mounting options available on many online stores. Inexpensive tri-pods or fence post clamps provide excellent alternatives if fence mounting is not an option.
