The interest in volleyball has progressively increased over the last thirty years. It has been taken from a high school program all the way to the Olympics. Volleyball team managers and coaches know the value of a good scoreboard. The very nature of volleyball and the variety of environments of the game makes choosing one of the volleyball scoreboards an interesting situation. Volleyball scoring systems can enhance the game or leave it out in the cold. A few things to consider if you are looking to buy a scoreboard.
Quality Quality Quality
Before you think about buying one of those cheap volleyball scoreboards, remember that cheap does not mean good. Only talk to experienced companies that have been manufacturing scoreboards in the long term. Buying a cheap scoreboard can involved bad construction, installation problems and maintenance nightmares. Poor quality will also give the scoreboard the appearance of an antique, after only a small passage of time.
High Tech LED
Whatever you do, don’t even think about any kind of manual scoreboard. Today’s LED scoreboards are the only choice. Bright colors attract the eyes; sublime electronic and high tech features bring the game to new heights of experience. LED offers lower electrical requirements and very little maintenance.
Do you have a permanent volleyball arena or will the scoreboard need to be mobile? Are you playing in a standard venue or does this include beach games? Is it indoors or outdoors? There are a number of choices for volleyball scoring systems, but your decision must involve where the games will be played. Outdoor volleyball scoring systems are constructed to stand up to the environment.
Thinking about a portable?
If you need one of the portable volleyball scoreboards, you are in luck. They are available in an array of excellent choices. Due to the fact that they will be carried around, they are made with sturdy construction. If you choose a larger unit, remember that you will need to have a vehicle of the required size to move it. High tech LED resolution and many features that you find in the permanent units are now available in the portable versions.
Cable wired or wireless
Permanent volleyball scoreboards can be hard wired. Typically you will want to bury the cables. If indoors, this will involve some coordination and construction. If outdoors you will need to consider the digging process. Above ground cables are safety hazards for team members as well as fans. Wireless is a better choice if you want to eliminate the cables completely.
Casing or LED colors and Sponsor areas
A good manufacturer will have a consultant that works with you on your particular scoreboard needs. Casings can be designed in your team colors. LED colors come in an array of selections to match your team. Sponsorship is a biggy. Everyone knows that sports fans are some of the most loyal fans and will relate sponsor products that equate to purchases. Your volleyball scoreboard should include areas for quality sponsor representation.
