This software is useful for kids' chess clubs.  It calcuates ratings and produces a ladder showing members' rank.  It also includes a tournament manager that does pairings, assigns boards, etc.  It has been used by the author in 2 different clubs over a period of 2 years.  It includes extensive documentation.

    This software works well for our sholastic club. The students enjoy the ladder rankings and the swiss paring system is adequate. Obviously an expensive pairing system works better, but for a free program, it is great. I have to manually enter results into the USCF to rate games and that can be time consuming. We are at a point where I should buy Swiss Sys or something like that. A great program to start out a club

    i have used Chess Club Manager for over 20 years teaching hundreds of kids chess and it is without a doubt worth every cent!

    how do you correct an entry mistake

  • by ssafdar

    So what happens if a student is absent one of the weeks? 

    Also, is this sufficient to run tournaments?

    How long would you normally give per match?

    Is there a version of this for Mac OSX?  Or perhaps for iOS?
