Create your tournament by specifying basic information as name, date and place. Set your pairing system (Swiss system, Round-robin), number of rounds and tiebreak criteria. Publish your tournament and let people know about it.
Invite players to your tournament by email and use SWIPS for players to sign in. Signed players are added to your fully manageable starting list automatically. Add players or remove them any time during the tournament.
Use one of the standard pairing systems, which is chosen in tournament creation to pair players for every round. Set not to pair specific players or manually edit pairings for ultimate control over your tournament.
Publish every round results and next round pairings in no time as both are immediately available on tournament page. Present important information via projector or export it to various formats. Share your tournament on social media.
I love it. I run the chess club at our high school and thought it would be fun to run a casual in-house tournament. SWIPS is making it super easy.
Lucas Spriggs, Belleville West Chess Classic
So far it looks very good. The user interface is quite self-explanatory, easy to navigate.
Rafal Grzybowski, KMD Poland Chess Tournament
SWIPS worked fine, the interface is intuitive and very easy to use. We look forward to use your platform again.

organisers and players
Before SWIPS was created, there was no tool, which would allow you to create and organise real-world tournament in one place. You had to use plenty of different tools for players registration, tournament managment or publishing results. Therefore we decided to create application to simplify organisation of tournaments. As part of our team are chess players, we started with this domain. Over time of few years we were participating in local tournaments and getting feedback from organisers and players. We have applied all these experience into our application. Nowadays is SWIPS real-world tournament management software for various sports and games.
