Hi everyone,

 

 

 

So I am doing some work with sport statistics this year. I need a few more programmes that run on Windows to keep track of the statistics of specific sports. For example:

Cricket - http://CricHQ.com is what we are using

 

Basketball - http://fibaorganiser.com is what we are using

 

Sports such as Volleyball, Netball, Soccer, Rugby don't have suitable platform for keeping statistics. I would love to try and code something, or use Excel that could do it all for me, but time is quite limited, and the sports seasons are coming up. Does anyone know any software that could help me with other sports? It would be great to be able to keep statistics for games, and it's proving extremely difficult to find something online.

 

 

 

Thank you!

When I saw the subject I was going to suggest R (fun fact: was developed here in NZ!) as it is great for stats analysis, very very popular in many industries for stats analysis, and is open source.

But it sounds like maybe you need something more like a web scraper to pull in data from a bunch of sources and combine together??

An easy way to scrape data, assuming the data is stored in a table on a website, is to use importHtml() using google sheets.

It's both easy and effective.
