Greetings All. I need some help developing a tournament schedule that takes into consideration the following: 16 Men & 16 Women. Partners are drawn from a hat. From these 32 players, 16 are separated into the A-Group "Advanced Players" and 16 B-Group "Good Players".  Each original male/female pair plays each pair in their group. Midway into each match, the men change sides. Each player must therefore report his/her individual score to the scorekeeper at the end of each match. Four courts are available for our use from 8h30 to 15h30 - which would suggest that 8 games per match would be appropriate. Towards the end of the tournament, the winners of Group A and Group B play against each other so that there is an overall winner. How can I develop a results recording schedule that takes these points into consideration that is easy to understand for the score-keepers? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. :)

A suggestion. This is the schedule for group A. Make exactly the same schedule for group B.
The men (in blue have names 1 to 8 ) and the women in pink have the numbers 1 to 8. 
So male 1 and 8 starts against woman 2 and 6. You could change the courts between rounds if you dont want player 8 to play at the same court all the time. There are 14 rounds per group but you can stop whenever you like. I am not an expert on this so perhaps you will get better advice from some of the other members.
