Welcome! This simple online tool will generate a (double) round robin tournament schedule for you. Optionally, you can also use it to keep score.
So far 128,109 schedules have been generated, for a total of 15,573,995 matches!
Generating a tournament schedule using this online schedule maker is very simple. Just follow the steps below (the numbers refer to the form fields in the scheduler form above):
- Enter the names of the players or teams you want to include in your tournament. Use one entry per line in this text box. If you do not feel like entering names by hand, you can also click the 'auto-generate' link and generate numbered players to include in the schedule.
- Choose whether you want to schedule a single or double round robin tournament league. Single round robin means each team faces each other team once, double round robin means each team faces each other team twice. With double round robin, there will be a 'home' and an 'away' match between each of the teams.
- If you want to include the locations of the matches in your schedule, select 'Yes' here. If you choose to schedule locations, you need to specify half as many locations as you have specified players (again, enter one per line). In the case of an odd number of players, round half the number of players down. Note: the scheduling of the locations is not very balanced at the moment; e.g. the first player will always play at the same location. We are working on improving this algorithm.
- Enter a title for your tournament or league.
- We highly recommend you specify an e-mail address here. We will email you a link to your tournament schedule if you fill in this field. If you lose the URL to your schedule, you will not be able to view it again or modify it. Having the URL in your inbox is therefore quite convenient! We will only use your e-mail address for this one-time service and will not store it.
- Prove you are human by completing the reCAPTCHA field.
- Click the 'Generate!' button, and voilà! Your tournament schedule is ready.
After generation of your schedule, you will receive two URLs: one that allows read-only access to your schedule, and one that allows you to edit player (and location) names, and enter score online. Just share either of those URLs with your friends and get the tournament started!
Note that it is now also possible to automatically generate a ranking table for your league! When you keep score on the online tournament schedule, and all scores are integer numbers (so 0, 1, 2, etc.), you can click the link below the match schedule and a results table will be generated. It will display matches played, wins, draws, losses, score for, score against, and number of points in a nice convenient table.
About this site
I created this website, because I could not find a nice online sports scheduling tool, while also allowed one to easily keep score. Hopefully this is useful to some of you!
A word of thanks goes out to Richard DeVenezia's excellent website that helped me understand the algorithms required for round-robin scheduling.
So far this online schedule maker has generated 128,109 schedules, for a total of 15,573,995 matches!
