Funny ABL Tipping - who's interested?

Unfortunately, Quentin Zervaas who runs NBL Tipping is just too busy to put together a Central ABL tipping site (he's being paid to do tipping sites for the SEABL and QABL), so the best option is out.

I think it'd be good to have a tipping competition regardless, even if it's scrappy and handled manually.

One alternative is to buy something like the tipping software from and use that ($187 for a web-enabled version; $165/hour to customise the appearance). Even easier if they host it and I don't have to

"Web hosting for up to 200 tippers costs an additional $82.50 (inc. GST) , on top of the web edition, so in total you will pay $269.50 (inc. GST)."

The free option as I see it is to appoint someone to receive tips by emails, email out reminders to a list of participants, and make manual calculations (painful for any more than a handful of people).

Who wants to be involved? Who wants to actually tip?

If someone can come up with a cheap sponsor ($187!), we'll do it and they'll get decent branding in return.

I'd be keen to participate! Would you be looking at running it for both men & women's competitions, or just the men?

I thought that forcing a combined score of men and women's comps could encourage people to take an interest in both.

A combination might affect the teams ladder but if that's the one disadvantage, so be it.

Any other takers? If there's not enough interest, I won't bother trying to find a sponsor to cover the costs.

Put me down for sure. Good idea to have men's and women's-- more interest needed in womens hoops- I've never really followed it before, but if there was tips on the line, I'd be courtside!!

Throw me in the mix, all though I'm tipping long distance so don't expect to much knowledge here.

Fresh off a win in NBL tipping I'd be happy to try and back it up with a win in ABL tipping!

Make people pay $10 to enter, that would cover the costs! Then the winner gets whatever is left over at the end as their prize.

I have a likely sponsor for our ABL tipping competition that will keep it free and encourage as many people as possible to play. More news soon.
