About GameSheet Inc: In 2013, while volunteering as a Convenor for Newmarket House League, Rich Berman (President & Co-founder) discovered that part of his job was to enter data from each paper scoresheet into a spreadsheet and email it to the league’s webmaster. In the age of iPads, Rich couldn’t believe that they were still keeping score with pen and paper, and manually updating stats and standings. Rich called Mike, an entrepreneur and his partner in the Cujo Invitational Tournament, and GameSheet Inc. was born. Since then they’ve been perfecting their digital score sheet and inventing new tools to reduce the time, effort, and cost of managing leagues and scoring games. As sports enthusiasts themselves, and users of their invention, they are passionate and focused on making the GameSheet system the best solution it can be.
