Fencing Time v4.0
Fencing Time v4.0 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 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 v4.0 was released in September 2013 after nearly three years of development and testing.

Fencing Time v4.0 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 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 v4.0 introduces the ability to customize its operation and rules to a specific fencing federation. And, if you prefer, you can now run Fencing Time in English (US or UK), French or Spanish!
