New Handicap Calculator – now available in Global Resources

Thank you to Brian Wainman for developing this Handicap Calculation tool.

By entering the type of game, such as GC 13pt or AC Handicap, and each players handicaps, the tool will quickly work out how many bisques you should have in AC handicap, how many extra strokes in GC handicap and the winner and loser points impact when playing AC advanced games.

Click here> or access it from the Global Resources page of the WCF Website.

The operation of handicap systems is a matter for individual national governing bodies, however this calculator is believed to work in most WCF Member countries.

Brian welcomes any feedback or ideas for further development. Please contact him directly by email:





Swiss Tournament Management Spreadsheet

Tournament Management Spreadsheet

This a macro-driven Excel spreadsheet designed to assist Tournament Managers to run both formal and flexible Swiss tournaments.

It generates automated pairings, lawn allocations and results tabulation. Formal Swiss pairings are in accordance with the CA Tournament Regulations.

There is also an auto-management mode to allow the players to manage, whilst the Tournament Manager plays!

Download the spreadsheet: Swiss Tournament Management Spreadsheet v.6.2

The following documents may also be downloaded: 


I am having problems downloading the spreadsheet?

As the spreadsheet contains macros you may have have to amend your virus software settings to allow it to be downloaded.  For example, With Norton anti virus software, Excel can give a 'file corrupt message' if opened automatically after the download but opens it OK if you subsequently manually open the file from your download directory.
