A rotating schedule for a softball team 2016-03-25
From Caroline:
I couldn't find a similar question, hopefully there isn't one!

I have a softball team of 18 people (7 girls and 11 boys), but am limiting each game to 13 players (6 girls and 7 boys). The season is 10 games long. How do I create a rotating schedule which allows members to play evenly? I tried separating the boys and girls to create rotation for each but I got confused. Some are unable to attend all games but for the simplicity of a rotation schedule can you please help?

A 6 team social softball league 2009-05-02
From Don:
Hi We have a 6 team social softball league with only two fields. Each team plays two games each Saturday. We have three time slots 10:00, 12:00 and 2:00 We play for 11 Saturdays and than have a 2 weekend playoff. All teams prefer double headers vs the split at 10:00and 2:00. How do we schedule as balanced a schedule as possible and minmize the splits ? Thanks Don
