New tournament tool to create draws

Before we introduce a tournament software from ophardt we want to give you the oppurtunity to use a self programed excel sheet produced by Paul Holleis from Germany. We already used it for the ICO Speedminton(R) Slovenian Open and some other german tournaments, it works well, is very easy to handle and it is following the official ICO standards.
Here comes the link to the tool.
