New Feature: Period-Based Scorekeeping

AREENA's new Period-Based Scorekeeping enables league organizers to track more than just the final score for sports like volleyball, pickleball, baseball, etc.!

We are excited to announce a powerful new feature designed to elevate your game management experience: Period-Based Scorekeeping.

This enhancement brings a new level of flexibility and precision when tracking scores across various sports and game formats.

Why Period-Based Scorekeeping?

Previously, our platform tracked only overall game scores. In a soccer match, for instance, you could simply record the final score (3-2).

While this works well for some sports, we recognized the need for more granular scoring options in others.

Introducing Enhanced Tracking Options:

With Period-Based Scorekeeping, you can now:

  • Track Scores Within Sub-Games: Perfect for games like pickleball, volleyball, and tennis, where matches are divided into sets. You can now track scores for each game within a best-of-# format (e.g., pickleball: first to 11 points wins a game).
  • Track Scores Within Periods: ┬áThis caters to sports like baseball, where recording scores by inning is crucial. Each inning's score is recorded separately but still contributes to the overall game score, without being considered a sub-game.

A Commitment to User Experience:

These updates reflect our ongoing dedication to providing a versatile and user-friendly platform for sports league management.

We believe these enhancements will make managing your recreational leagues more efficient and improve the overall experience for both adult league organizers and participants.


The AREENA app and leagues offer an immersive rec sports experience for adults, with stat tracking, skill matching, leaderboards and team messaging. Subscribe and play soccer or basketball year round, or pay by game or match with zero commitments.
