Tested in large and small tournaments alike

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.

SWIPS worked fine, the interface is intuitive and very easy to use. We look forward to use your platform again.

SWIPS story

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.
