 Round Robin League

You can generate single round robin schedule - each team plays every other team only once.
If there is an odd number of teams - a bye is added to the mix - each round one of the teams does not play.
Round robin schedule is 'balanced' - it means that each team is scheduled at 'home' or 'away' locations
approximately the same number of times (the number of rounds is always odd and none of the teams
can play the same number of times at home or away unless there is a bye).
You have an 'option' to generate double 'balanced' Round Robin - each team plays each other twice.
You can also create Triple Round Robin. Each team plays every other team 3 times.
Below is a partial round robin league schedule generated by the software
 
 
 
 

 Round Robin Variations

Imagine a tournament scenario:
<<<How can I create 8 team round robin on 3 courts? >>>
The software will generate round robin  schedule (each team will play each other once) but it can not be 'balanced'
on 3 courts for 8 teams.
In order to generate such a schedule you must modify 'gamers per round' field on League Edit Screen.
In case of 8 teams on 3 courts this field has to be set to 3.
