In an effort to provide enhanced resources to tournament directors and referees, the USTA has made available “Tournament Data Manager on the Web,” a software application designed to make tournament management easier. Beginning in 2014, all sanctioned tournaments must use the new online version.
The USTA says TDM on the Web provides enhanced technology with features users are familiar, with plus many enhancements to facilitate setting up an event, creating draws and scheduling matches. The software program is free for member organizations of the USTA.
“We are always looking at ways to enhance the experience for our tournament directors, referees and players, and TDM on the Web does just that,” said Jeff Waters, USTA managing director for Adult Tennis. “In 2014, all USTA tournaments will be run using this digital platform.”
Key benefits to using TDM on the Web include:
* Tournament directors and referees can access TDM on the Web from any computer, including Macs and iPads.
* Multiple users can work on the same tournament simultaneously from different locations.
* Users will no longer be required to download new versions of the software or upload tournament results.
* Match results will also be instantly available online for players and others.
