Tournament Scheduler - Easy to use online schedule maker for round robin tournament schedules

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 404,046 schedules have been generated, for a total of 37,334,694 matches!

  1. ...or auto-generate ‘Player 1’...‘Player X’ if you're too lazy to type.

  2. 2. Choose tournament type

  3. 3. Schedule locations?

  4. 4. Enter a tournament name

  5. 5. Enter your e-mail address (optional)

    Not required, but highly recommended! Why ask for my e-mail address?

    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.

  6. 6. Prove you are human

Instructions

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):

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Enter a title for your tournament or league.
  5. 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.
  6. Prove you are human by completing the reCAPTCHA field.
  7. 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 404,046 schedules, for a total of 37,334,694 matches!

    Hi, it's a great website but I'm struggling to create a schedule for my tournament - can anyone help?

    I've got to plan a tournament with 2 groups of 12 teams each.

    It's across 2 venues. In venue A there are 6 different rooms. In venue B there are 5 different rooms.

    Every team needs to play a match against every other team in its group (so 11 matches in total for each team). It's also important that each team plays one match in each room (as each room has a different type of challenge).

    One group starts at venue A and plays 6 matches there, and then plays 5 matches at venue B. The other group starts at venue B and plays 5 matches there, and then plays 6 matches at venue A.

    How do I create a match schedule that works???

    This service is fantastic and I've used it a number of times; however I have run into a weird issue that I am hoping someone might be able to help me resolve.

    I have my teams entered into the system. I created my tournament calendar; however I was making some adjustments to team names, and I errantly overwrote one of the team names (highlighted red in the image) with the name of one of the other teams (highlighted green in the image). This effectively merged the two teams to the same record and I can't figure out how to change the team name back to it's original name.

    If I try to update the team name that I erred on to the original correct team name (highlighted in orange in the image), it updates the other team name and vice versa....a vicious cycle. I need to figure out how to separate these two teams back to independent records again. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Hello, I'm looking for suggestions for a different scheduling method: I am hosting a "backyard Olympics." There will be FIVE events. I may have a few as 8 teams, possibly as many as 12. What I need is a schedule where I can plug in the number of teams and generate a schedule where every team plays every event, but doesn't necessarily have to play against every team. In a perfect scenario, I would have 10 teams, and you would never play the same opponent or the same event twice. (last year I had 8 teams confirmed, drew up the schedule and on the day of the games, four "spectators" became two more teams and it left me scrambling to try and create a schedule on the fly.)

    never mind I just now saw the description at the bottom of the rankings table....
    Ranking tables can be generated for tournaments using only integer values for scoring (e.g. goals, sets won, etc.). A win scores 3 points, a draw 1 point, and a loss 0 points. Ranking is determined by points; when points are equal, by score for; when that is also equal, by score against (reverse, obviously); when that is also non-conclusive, by least number of matches played. A match is considered played when both score fields in the tournament schedule table have been filled

  25. Ross Feiler

    Can you explain how the points column is generated in the rankings table?

    Hi, thanks for creating this very intuitive generator. i would like to create something similar, with these differences:
    - add a sign up page where each user can register and deregister
    - leave registrations open even when round robin has already started
    - publish fixtures only week by week (so that late joiners can be paired up)
    - auto generate an email to each pair to notify who you have been paired up with
    any advice where i should start from?
    many thanks
    Ettore

    Same here. I tried every single browser I had installed and it refused all of them. Seems like it is the website after all. Hopefully admin will see this, since it is pretty much the best round robin management tool online, including paid ones.

    I'm currently having some issues creating a new round Robin tournament through the website, it tells me the captcha failed, even though I got a verified human result out of it. Maybe recaptcha updated lately and it stopped registering the outcome of the test? Cheers.

    Hello dear admin,
    First, I would like to say a big thank you for developing and sharing this website tool!
    Second, I would like to share a problem I encountered when I tried to edit some of the fields. I am trying to always keep the original links that were generated for my league by just updating the names in the fields. When I tried to do that, as soon as I entered a name in one field, all the rest of the fields were filled with that same name. Then, I tried to update another name field, but as soon as I updated it, all the rest of the fields got filled with the new name I entered. How do I go around this problem, so I can enter all the names in the appropriate fields, where I will have the desired match ups?
    Kind regards,
    Ilian Nachev

    Hello we have brought this up before, but is it possible to change point system.? We do not have ties in our league, and we grant 2 points for a win (regulation or over time) and 1 point for an over time loss, zero points for a regulation loss. The 3 point system you use has to be converted manually and this is time consuming.

    Mate, You should include an option where we could dictate how many matches a single player/team gets to play. That way it could be much more customizable and could end up being more convinient

    There are 22 players in our golf league. We have an A-flight (the 11 lowest handicap golfers) and a B-flight (the 11 highest handicap golfers). Is it possible to have 11 teams comprised of a different A-flight and B-flight team playing every week and making sure the teams are not playing against each other more than once? I want each A golfer to play with every B golfer as a team against another A/B team weekly, but not overlap. I've seen posts about a program that can do that. Is that still available from Bob9/BobR? Thanks for your help!

    Hi,

    We have to arrange a corporate tournament for badminton.

    we have 4 groups/house colored as Blue, red, orange and white and each house will have 8 players in them.

    We want to schedule this tournament in round robin fashion but we don not want players from same house play against each other in the first round robin.

    We want to extract top 16 from 48 people and then will have simple round robin match between them to select for quarter finals and then semis and finals. [ here players from same house may play against each other and thats ok for us].

    Can you please suggest us how can we schedule a tournament like this and can this software help us in doing so.

    Thanks so much for your patience to read this query.
