JScore is a PC based electronic Judo Scoreboard system. It came about as a result of my youngest son starting Judo about 6 years ago at the age of thirteen. I have four Children, Two Judoka (Matthew 1st Dan and Connor 2nd Dan after only 3 years), Dr Adam Hughes MBBS Bsc, and Nicola, mum to my beautiful grand daughter Emma.
Many years ago I wrote an electronic Judo Scoreboard system for the ZX Spectrum, in Sinclair Basic, and some Z80 machine code for the timers. It was used in some club level events, but with the speccy’s little rubber keys, and the lack of dual screen capability, it never really took off, but the idea never left me either.
When my son started Judo, the idea immediately flooded back to me. I am a software engineer by trade, and when my son decided (at long last) to follow in my footsteps (actually far exceeded my footsteps already, I was never British Schools Champion).
I thought about producing an affordable system, which could be used by anyone and everyone, using their existing PC equipment.
Once the scoreboard software was released, It quickly became apparent that the judo community needed more than just a scoreboard, but the ability to organise and manage events as well, and so I set about designing the Jscore management platform, to bring judo into the 21st Century, and so the JScore Tournament Manager was born.
