The English Tiddlywinks Association faced many of these tournament problems, which were solved by Dr. Nicholas Inglis (and later Dr. Matt Fayers) of the Cambridge University Tiddlywinks Club.

I organised these solutions, optimised them for players with rankings (so that important games -- top versus second seeds -- are played late), and put the designs, and printable score-sheets, at

The all-play-all (of singles or teams) tournaments most easily accessible via

The carry-over tournaments (two leagues, the top n of each goes through to the all-play-all final, except that the scores of games already played are re-used) via

and the individual pairs (partner everyone once, oppose everyone twice) via

These are used by Winkers across the globe, and are good for other sports as well.
