Every club can have multiple playing grounds/fields. You can define unlimited number of grounds/fields for each club.


Grounds by Association page


Grounds by Club page


In addition to the Club's own fields a club can also "borrow" fields from another club ("Other Fields to use").

Remember that you can define a "neutral" club, i.e. a club which actually does not exist, with neutral fields for use by other clubs.



Field Code- an unique code is required


Ground Category- if this is not a standard field, select a field category (see Ground Categories)


Parent Field- a field can be defined in the system more than once. This may sound a bit confusing so we will try to explain how it works on the following example.


 Let us say that we have a standard size field which is used for most of the day by Age Groups 9 and over but we also want to use it in the morning as two "mini fields" for Age Groups under 9.

 In order to satisfy our requirements we have to do the following:

 1. Define the "standard" filed as (say) "Ash Brown" - no parent field and special field category is selected.

 2. Define the first "mini" field as Ash Brown 1 - select "Ash Brown" as the parent field and select an appropriate field category.

 3. Define the second "mini" field as Ash Brown2 - select Ash Brown" as the parent field and select an appropriate field category.        


 bulb A parent field can be any field defined in the system, not just the Club's own field!


Draw Sequence- a draw sequence instructs the Draw Generator in what order fields should be utilized. Again an example will help with explaining the various options.


 a) 4 fields - A,B,C,D  Sequence: A=1, B=2, C=4, D=5 Notice that there is a GAP between fields C &

 D. This is very important!

 Draw generated: A,B,A,B,A.B,A...... until 100% utilized followed by C,D,C,D,C,D,C.........


 b) 4 fields - A,B,C,D        Sequence: A=1, B=2, C=4, D=6 Notice the GAPS in the sequence!

 Draw generated: A,B,A,B,A.B,A...... until 100% utilized followed by C,C,C,C,C,C,........ and then D,D,D,D,D,......


 c) 4 fields - A,B,C,D        Sequence: A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4 Notice that there are NO GAPS!

 Draw generated: A,,B,C,D, A,B,C,D, A,B,C,D, A,,B,C,D,A............


 bulb        So the rule is that if there is a gap in the field draw sequence numbers, the program will fill up all fields with the lower number(s) first before "skipping" the gap and using the next field(s)






In order to be able to display the ground/field map in iCompMan iData public page we need map coordinates (latitude/longitude).


The latitude/longitude data is used by Google maps to locate the address in a static map. These parameters can be obtained by the new “Lookup Latitude/Longitude” tool as show below. The accuracy of the coordinates, and therefore the actual map, will depend on the accuracy of the address provided. You can always change/adjust the latitude/longitude coordinates manually if necessary.


Since clubs have usually multiple fields at the same address you can use the “Copy Latitude/Longitude …” tool to update all of the club’s fields. This means that you have to setup only one of the club’s fields and then simply copy the coordinates for the rest of them.


 The “Show map” button will show you what will visitors see on theiCompMan iData public page.
