Create an Event - Step 1: Format & Schedule


The first step when creating an event is selecting the event's format. Your format options are Tournament (round-robin, compass draw, traditional formats, ad-hoc), and Match Play.

If you're unsure of what format you'd like to run, no worries, you can just select "Tournament" for now, and then update the match format later (if you want to) when you're creating your draws.


Once you've selected your format, you'll have to decide whether you'd like this to be a verified event.

Tip: You cannot change your event's verified status once it has registrants, so if you want your event to be verified, please make sure to set the verification correctly.

As a reminder, to run verified events, you'll need a Pro Club Subscription. Also, you'll also have to follow the UTR Verified Club and Event Rules. Here are a few, which you'll also see when setting up your event if you choose verified:


Once you've set the format and basics of your event, you're ready to create your schedule. Here, you can select specific dates and times for registration and the event itself. You also have the option to choose whether to notify players of the date you plan on publishing draws.

Our rules require general registration to close at least 48 hours before the tournament starts, but organizers can allow late registration at their discretion. We recommend creating your event two months in advance to give players plenty of time to register. 

Pro Tip:  If you ever need to re-open registration after you've closed it, you can do so by following the steps outlined here.
