Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Sally:

I have 14 dart teams. Each team has a home bar.Usually it is one week home, the next week away. I have 3 locations that have one board only, yet have 2 teams at each location. I have one location that has 2 dart boards, and 3 teams. The last location have 3 dart boards and 4 teams.Can you make me a schedule that will be home and away, and every teams plays each other twice. In case you are wondering, the bars sponsor the teams.Thank you. Sally


That seems to be 13 teams.

Apart from that, it is not clear what to do about games between two teams from one pub. If they are to play a "home-home" game, there will be significantly more home games than away games (especially for the pub with four teams) and strict alternation will be impossible.
