Table Tennis Scoreboard

A unique way to keep track of your table tennis (Ping Pong) score.

I've played too many games of table tennis where the score was forgotten. I wanted an easy solution to prevent that from happening, so I came up with this Arduino based Table Tennis Scoreboard.

Keeping track of a score is as simple as pushing a button.

This scoreboard is designed specifically for table tennis, but with a little code-tweaking it could be used to score a variety of games. It might even make a decent clock or count-down timer.

 

 

Features:
- Large 5" bi-color 7-segment numbers
- Ultra power-efficient display
- Tracks points, games, server, and sides
- Wireless buttons last 5+ years on a coin cell
- Display itself can also be battery-powered
- Mounts to a wall, cubby, tabletop, or tripod
- Pre-programmed to play official table tennis rules

Adjustable parameters:
- 5, 11, or 21 point games
- 1-5 games-to-win per match
- Player starting side (or random)
- Server starting side (or random)

Materials:
- Mahogany based plywood
- A variety of plexiglass
- 9 printed circuit boards
- Lots of electronic components

Display housing size:
- 13.0" x 6.8" x 2.0"

Button size:
- 3.6" x 1.1" x 1.1" (not including nub)
