What's New?

WinTD Version 5.00!

We are pleased to announce that Version 5.00 is now available. This has many important improvements, including the ability to download the US Chess Database with all ratings, and the FIDE database. It uses a new, more flexible, format for tournaments and master files, but will still support the legacy formats.

Revision History

We've posted a Release Dates page, listing the release dates of the various versions of WinTD.

Welcome to the home page for WinTD, our Windows-based program for chess tournament directors. WinTD has quickly become the premier program for running Swiss System chess tournaments. It is designed to handle every aspect of running a chess tournament, from managing a player database, to pairing rounds and entering results, to generating prize lists and reports.

See About WinTD for more information on the program, or select from the menu above for details on placing an order, downloading a free demo version, and more.

If you've used earlier versions of WinTD, you can read about the improvements in Version 5.00 on the WinTD Version 5.00 page. See the Prices page for prices and ordering information.

Who's Using the Program?

WinTD is being used around the country (and even around the world) to pair everything from small club and school events to major national USCF events. WinTD has been used to run US Amateur Teams East, US Open, and various National All Grades and National Scholastic K-12 events. WinTD has also been the program of choice at the Game/10, National High School, and the US Amateur Teams Midwest tournaments.
