This article explains how club and associations administrators can add fill-in players to game line-ups.

Note: This feature is available to Netball, Basketball (excluding NSW and TAS), Cricket and Hockey.

Fill-In Records

It is important to note that when a fill-in is added to a line up it does not create a registered participant profile. A fill-in record means:

  • No checks are completed for any suspensions or life-bans

  • Contribute to an overall’s players profile and statistics

  • A game will not be recorded against any participant record and therefore count for finals eligibility

  • On the playhq.com public match centre the record with appear as ‘Fill In’ for that particular game

Adding a Fill-In

Fill in players can be added in two ways:

  • Whilst a game is being e-scored

  • When selecting a line-up. This can be completed pre or post game.

Note once a line-up is locked only association admins will be able to change the line-up and therefore add fill-in players
