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 641,955 schedules have been generated, for a total of 59,849,376 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 641,955 schedules, for a total of 59,849,376 matches!

    Can we generate a Round Robin bracket where players change teams for each match? In other words, the bracket would not reflect the same team, but individual players matched up for each match and each player gets their own points from each match to accumulate and determine the medal winners.

    Is there anyway to make the schedule longer than just a double round robin? I use it for my middle school class and end up making 2-3 schedules and then have to add the ranking tables up on my own. Possibly add an "enter number of rounds" field, possibly make it select specific numbers depending on how many teams you have to keep the round robin formatting. So 4 teams currently generates 6 rounds. 6 teams generates 10 rounds. So if I enter 4 teams, a # of rounds box would give me options of 6, 12, 18, etc. If I enter 6 teams, the fields options would give me options of 10, 20, 30 rounds etc..

    This is still the best and easiest schedule maker I have found.

    I have 12 teams, 6 rounds and 2 events per round.
    I'd like each team to play 3 games of each event for a total of 6 games. Per round, event 1 is laddergolf, event 2 is washer toss.

    So, I need each team to play 3 laddergolf and 3 washer toss for a total of 6 games and play a different team each time.

    Is it possible to create such a schedule??

    Help please!

    Hello,
    Just wondering why for one of my leagues that I have running, when I try to get a chart of the rankings, the site tells me that "all scores need to be in integers" I have two leagues set up. Both have some games that ended in a 0-0 tie. Both are still ongoing, but only one won't allow me to see a current ranking?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback or help!

    Being able to change the point values for win/lose/draw would greatly improve this site. My current issue is some people dropped out mid tournament and if I could change draw to 0 points and lose to 1 point it would provide an accurate results page.

    Hi,

    I have entered results, however, it keeps coming up with the below statement when trying to look at the results table. I have looked at it before so i do not know why there is an issue now. There are over 100 results, and I have checked through them 3 times to make sure there are only whole numbers. Is there a reason this keeps coming up?

    "To create a results table, all entered scores have to be integer numbers"

    I thought this would be an easy thing to do but it's tougher than it looks. We have 9 guys playing pickleball (pairs) 2 courts so one person sits each game. The printed schedules we get have us play some people multiple times while we don't play others at all. I need a schedule where we play every other player. Thanks in advance for your help.

    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.)
