Fencing Time is the most sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, software available for managing fencing tournaments of any size. Whether you are running a 10-person event, a World Cup, or a 10,000-person national championship, Fencing Time will make the job easy and allow you to provide the best experience for your competitors, coaches, and spectators.
Fencing Time has been used by USA Fencing since January of 2012 to run every national-level event. These tournaments are among the largest ever run and Fencing Time has handled these huge events with no problems.
Fencing Time is fully homologated by the FIE and its use around the world keeps growing. It is being selected to run more and more World Cups, Grand Prix, and Championship events with every passing month. In addition, it is quickly being adopted as the standard software for running events by a growing list of fencing federations around the world.
Fencing Time is available in two versions: Standard and Server. Read on to learn more about what each version offers and check out the feature comparison chart to determine which version is best for you!
Fencing Time Server Version
The Fencing Time Server stores your tournament data in a centralized database, which allows you to use any number of computers to manage the tournament simultaneously. You can add additional computers to handle your check-in desk and eliminate paper sign-in sheets completely! Plus, with the Fencing Time server, you can set up an unlimited number of remote monitors at your venue, each displaying customizable tournament information. If you've attended a USFA National Event, you have seen the Fencing Time server version in action - and now you can have the same technology for your events!
Fencing Time Standard Version
If you don't need the multiple-computer capabilities of the Fencing Time server version, the Standard version includes all of the new features and improvements, and can be run on a single computer just like prior versions of Fencing Time.
Fencing Time is FIE homologated and has the ability to customize its operation and rules to a specific fencing federation. And, if you prefer, you can run Fencing Time in English (US or UK), French, Spanish or Polish!
Fencing Time v4.0 HS is a custom version of Fencing Time designed primarily to serve the needs of high school fencing in the state of New Jersey. For more information on this version, see HERE.
