A six team league to play a 20 game schedule 2015-10-19
From Kelly:
Hi there. Some of your posts are close, but my problem is evening out the home and away games. We have 6 teams in our league and we are going to play a 20 game schedule, playing everyone 4 times. We will play Fridays and Saturdays, each weekend. Of course the ideal would be to have each team have a home and an away game each weekend, but I realize that is impossible, but I would like it as close as possible. Any help would be much appreciated!! We also were considering opening with a home and away - Friday then Saturday with the same teams. Then carrying on with playing everyone else and then possibly finishing up with the same home and home

Two 9 hole golf leagues 2014-04-23
From Sally:
I need help scheduling two 9 hole leagues. Here are the variables:
- Leagues alternate each week starting on the front and back
- League A starts at 4:30 with 7 groups and League B starts at 5:15 with 8 groups (all use carts and must be teed off by 5:30)
- Regular play must continue, customers who have started before league play begins have preference to continue their round whether they are playing 9 or 18 holes.
Thank you!!!

A 22 team golf league 2014-04-21
From Terry:
We have a team league at our local golf course. We have 22 teams, we would like it so that each team plays the other team only once. I have tried the scenario.
1,21;2,20;3,19;4,18;5,17;6,16;7,15;8,14;9,13;10,11;12,X X+1=1 scenario
2, 1;3,21;4,20,5,19,6,18;7,17;8,16;9,15;10,14;11,13;1,X
using formula from other post in your forums.

I can get all the possible playing arrangements. The big quandary is setting up the schedule so that each week, each team would start on a different hole.

I can get the first 11 weeks scheduled very easily, it is just trying to get the last 11 weeks scheduled?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fantasy football league 2013-06-18
From Chris:
Hello, I am the commissioner of a fantasy football league. In this week, we play all 17 weeks of the season. It's a 12 team league, and we play each team twice. To do that, we have 5 "double header" weeks, which means you play 2 different teams. I am struggling to come up with a schedule to make this work. Does anyone have a solution?

A 9 team league 2007-10-11
From Dary:
I have a 9 team pool league. Each team must play each other once only. But 2 teams cannot play at the same place location each week. I can't seem to match this up and I get stuck.

My fantasy football league 2005-08-16
From Jim:
I have to make a schedule for my fantasy football league. There are 10 teams in the league and we play a 13 week season. The challenge is we want to play each team only once during the first 10 weeks. This way no team will play another team twice without having played each team at least once. Is this possible?
