Doubles Tournament set up


New member
Feb 25, 2014
Hi. I was tasked with organising a tournament with the following set up:
8 players
7 rounds
each round, each player is paired with another, and plays another pair; so each round has 2 games played (ie, a&b vs c&d ; e&f vs g&h)

However there were the following constraints:
Each player must be teamed up with each other player exactly once.
Each player must oppose each player exactly twice.

I was able to come to a solution, but it got me thinking: is it possiple that such an arangement could be organised for n players & n-1 rounds?
