[tennisbiz] Re: Round Robin Draws

From: Joe Rill <HS10scoach_at_aol.com>

Brad Melville asks about round robin draws for an 8 draw Round Robin. There
are several references that could help. Pat Kubota mentioned the one
available through Joe Dinoffer. USTA published one called Easy On Easy Off.

Here's one that worked in our club:

For an 8 person draw, number lines from one through eight on a sheet of
paper. If the entries are know in advance, its a lot easier. If you get
stuck not knowing who is going to show up, you may have to wait until the
event date to close the entries (or go to plan B which is much less
structured than this). In either case the mens' names go on the odd numbered
lines and the ladies' on the even number lines. Singles is easy to set up
(remembering that men are odd and women even):

1 Vs 3 2 Vs 4
5 Vs 7 6 Vs 8
1 Vs 7 2 Vs 8
3 Vs 5 4 Vs 6
1 Vs 5 2 Vs 6
7 Vs 3 8 Vs 4

Doubles is more complicated but can be set up with different partners each
round and even with different pairs of opponents.

Mens Doubles
1 & 3 Vs 5 & 7
1 & 5 Vs 3 & 7
1 & 7 Vs 5 & 3

Womens Doubles
2 & 4 Vs 6 & 8
2 & 6 Vs 4 & 8
2 & 8 Vs 6 & 4

Mixed is the most difficult because ladies seem to object playing against the
same opponent twice even with different partners. You can change courts to
mix up the opponents but try to keep the pairings to preclude playing with
the same partner twice:

1 & 2 Vs 3 & 4
5 & 6 Vs 7 & 8

1 & 6 Vs 5 & 8
3 & 2 Vs 7 & 4

1 & 8 Vs 7 & 2
3 & 6 Vs 5 & 4

1 & 4 Vs 7 & 6
3 & 8 Vs 5 & 2

As a matter of interest, Dennis Vandermeer used to include this in his Tennis
University 1 (quite a few years ago).
