Focus On The Sport. Tennis. All Weather, Scoreboard.
There is no excuse for losing track of games or sets. Enjoy your match & let redundant balls keep the score.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Wed, April 10 2019 1:53 PM UTC +00:00.
Converting our prototype into a product.
TO START, our story so far:
We love the competition, gamesmanship and social side of tennis, but during play there are times when we find ourselves forgetting the score. To keep things moving and focus on the fun we are in the process of developing our lightweight, all weather scoreboard for Games and Sets. For us it was important to look good, be simple and entertaining to use. We are still tweaking the design slightly, but are delighted with how things are shaping up:
- Easy to read and simple to use. H for the home team, V for visitors. Games numbered 0 - 7, on the final design the word Sets will be replaced with number 1-3
- Fixes to the fence with cable ties and stays out in all weather
- Makes use of those redundant tennis balls!
- It looks good and makes people smile
- Made In Britain and can be sent around the world
Your backing will help us Ace this project:
Converting a prototype into the real deal!
We seek funds to initially make these interactive scoreboards. Boards that keep the score correct and no Unforced Errors with the score, or cheating!!
If you own a court yourself or have a friend who is a keen player this scoreboard is the ideal Baseline tool to complement play and makes a great gift.
H for Home and V for Visitors, two rows of holes to keep track of up to 7 games and 3 sets.
We like to keep things simple!
Having developed the idea we now want to get it to market. This is where you come in!
Batch production brings the price down per unit but we also need to factor in packaging and dispatch. Our Pledge Target will enable us to get this project up and running and give us the Advantage and Serve you a Slice of the action.
For this special Kickstarter project these scoreboards can be in either limited edition Sunshine Orange, because it is bright, jolly, bold and joyous, or in a traditional Lawn Tennis Green. DOWN THE LINE we envisage green as standard with the possibility of guest colours for special occasions.
We hope you enjoy our practical and novel scoreboard as much as us and we look forward to sharing this journey with you.
Lots of love, from us,
at Filthy Weather HQ
Risks and challenges
We have been developing the scoreboard for a while and feel confident we have bases covered with our manufacturers. We know green is a good and traditional colour for the court, yet we are excited with the celebratory bright orange colour with white lettering.
The boxes are to be simple and strong and recyclable to ensure your scoreboard arrives intact with minimal waste.
There are risks and challenges with any new commercial project. We are endeavouring to minimise risks by keeping this project as simple as possible. Starting small but with a vision for growth.
