Before you Start
Determine the division or league that you are playing in (you will need it's id). This will be key to successfully using the online app to enter or monitor the scoring.
Open the NAPA Play web app
Navigate your browser to www.napaplay.com There you will see several options that are useful while participating in a match, whether you are scoring, monitoring, or the team captain.
You will need to use the Captain's Player Id to log into the app when scoring a team match. When scoring a singles match, you will use your own NAPA Player Id.
To access the player center you must use your division or league Id along with your NAPA Player Id.
Here you can view:
For best experience, logout when you are done.
Score Boards (Live Score Board)
To access this option, all you need is the division or league Id. This gives you all of the ongoing matches for that division as they are happening. You can view your own match, as well here - or you can look at what other leagues are doing.
NOTE: The team not keeping score should monitor the match using this option to help ensure that the score keeping is correct. Play particular attention to the bonus points given - you want to be sure players get all of the points they deserve.
Press Go Back when done.
Choose the type of match you are scoring (i.e. singles, scotch doubles, teams, etc); then enter the division or league Id along with your Player Id (for singles), or the Captain's Player Id for any of the other formats. Then click Sign-in.
NOTE: Only one person can keep score! Everyone else can monitor the scores on the Live Score Board.
Here you can view and do many things. Enter a match up, view the Comp sheet, the scratch sheet, the schedule, the live scoreboard, add a player, send NAPA a message, view the race matrix and rules, and logout.
At the top you will see home team and visiting team. The progressive team skill level total will be displayed as you enter the matches (along with the limit).
Enter a Match
No one likes them, but here is how to handle them.
You can keep track of timeouts by:
Made a Mistake?
Made a mistake, like wrong person or player wrong the lag. You can start all over again if you haven't clicked finish. Notice there is an "X" to the left of the match - this deletes the entire match.. then you can enter the correct data. The app will confirm that you really want to delete the match.
If you marked the wrong game for the wrong person, simply mark the game for the right person and it changes.
What if you already clicked finished? The match will still be displayed but where there was an "X" to the left of the match, there will now be an "E" for Edit. Click "E" and the match will return so you can make adjustments or delete the entire match.
Adding a Player
You can easily add a player using the web app.
NOTE: If you need to add a new player, please call the League Operator so that we have a chance to verify that the skill level you entered is correct.
Send Message to NAPA
You can easily send a message to NAPA HQ, such as player X did not get a rackless because they fouled on the break; or Team X will do a makeup match Friday, etc.
Remember, once you have sent all the matches to NAPA HQ, you should Logout for the best possible experience. All skill levels are updated by 9:00AM this next morning and sometimes sooner!

I cannot add a new player
You will not be able to add a new player after the 5th week. If there are extenuating circumstances, you can contact us using the contact for, or call us and we will determine whether the new player can/should be added.
I cannot do a timeout on the loser of the lag
Timeouts can only be accessed by clicking on the winner of the lag. Both players show up there and you will be able to record the timeout
