I understand not every player will play every other player.

Havenít been able to figure it out. Appreciate your help.

I have the schedule below for 9 rounds which might work - just leave out one of the rounds.  All the partnerships should be different and players should play against all others at least once and at most twice.

  (10  5 v 11 15) (7  6 v 14  9) ( 8 12 v 16  1) ( 2  3 v 13  4)
  (11  6 v 12 13) (8  4 v 15  7) ( 9 10 v 16  2) ( 3  1 v 14  5)
  (12  4 v 10 14) (9  5 v 13  8) ( 7 11 v 16  3) ( 1  2 v 15  6)
  (14  7 v 15  5) (9 11 v  6 10) ( 3  8 v  1  4) (16 12 v  2 13)
  (15  8 v 13  6) (7 12 v  4 11) ( 1  9 v  2  5) (16 10 v  3 14)
  (13  9 v 14  4) (8 10 v  5 12) ( 2  7 v  3  6) (16 11 v  1 15)
  ( 8  6 v 14 16) (9  7 v  1 12) (15 13 v 10  3) ( 4  2 v  5 11)
  ( 9  4 v 15 16) (7  8 v  2 10) (13 14 v 11  1) ( 5  3 v  6 12)
  ( 7  5 v 13 16) (8  9 v  3 11) (14 15 v 12  2) ( 6  1 v  4 10)


It is best to leave out one of the 1st three rounds.
