Round Robin Draw Generator for singles and doubles tournaments
What is the Round Robin Format?
The round robin format will generate a Singles, Doubles, Teams or Fixed Pairs tournament where each player rotates against every other player in the same group. For Mixed Doubles, select two groups of an equal number of players (between 4 & 16 players in each group).
The number of courts and rounds will be automatically determined based on the number of players available in each group and the match type selected.
A round robin event can be scheduled for multiple groups within the same event but the players will only play with/against players from the same group. The cycle can be repeated up to 4 times.
Doubles - each player will partner with each other player in the same group once and play against each other player twice. This format can only be selected for multiples of 4 players within a group with the exception for 5 and 9 players, whereby each player will receive one bye round. The maximum number of players permitted in each group is 24 (i.e. 23 rounds).
Singles/Teams/Fixed Pairs - each player, team or pair will play every other player, team or pair in the group once (per cycle). When there is only 1 group selected, there will be an option to include elimination playoff. At the end of the rounds, the top 2, 4 or 8 players from the leaderboard will go into the elimination playoff. There is an option for a bronze playoff for 3rd place.
Mixed Doubles - each player will play against every other play from their group and partner with players from another group. Schedules are available for 8, 10, 14, 16, 18, 22, 24, 30 and 32 players (half in each group). "Spouse Avoidance" is an option provided for schedules with 8, 16, 24 and 32 players. "Spouse Avoidance" is required for schedules with 10, 14, 18, 22, 30 where each player will have a bye. For an equitable round robin, players should be ranked. For "spouse avoidance", the players in the same position in each team are considered as spouse for match scheduling.
Note: New mixed doubles schedules were added in v6.3 for 12, 20 and 28 players. For 12 players, 9 rounds will be scheduled with 2 matches per round. Each player will have 6 matches and 3 byes. For 20 and 28 players, every player competes in every round. For these 3 schedules, every player will partner with every player in the other group and play against all players in both groups once, with the exception of one opponent that they will play against twice.
