For smaller functions and events, you may not need a high priced, full featured scoreboard. If this is the case, then scoreboard modules may do the trick for you and your fellow basketball fans. These are not full scoreboards; instead, they are just the pieces required to report only the particular information about a game.

Separate components are often much cheaper than all-in-one scoreboards and typically more portable. What is most important, the modular approach allows building a highly customized solution based on your exact needs and even spread the acquisition costs over time if that works for you. The modules needed for a basketball scoreboard may vary in size depending on their function. Many components will fit nicely on a tabletop, making them popular for use in small venues with no permanent scoreboard fixture put in place. Basketball scoreboards which utilize separate components are frequently purchased by less serious venues to avoid excessive costs. High school basketball teams often employ the modular solutions for their boards to save up money. Certain sets of electronic modules, however, can require the effort to be put together, whereas all-in-one scoreboards can simply be bought and immediately put into action with minimum or no hassle. Also, some modules may still require installation into a wall or ceiling fixture for permanent display.

As the alternative to electronic module set, you can even come to nothing more than a flip board scorekeeper, a possession indicator plastic sign, and a stopwatch to keep time – if you are fine with the cheapest possible low-tech solution. Your job will be a little more difficult in that you will have some more manual work to do and you will have to pay more attention to the signage and time on the watch. For this reason, it still can be a good decision to spend some money on a countdown clock at least.
