I have seen there is no good way to do a good 10 players whist for volleyball with 2 player teams, so I was wondering if a schedule could be made for 10 players, one court would be playing 3 vs 3, the other court 2 vs 2? This would need to be whist style, where you play with different partners ever round, as evenly as possible, so ever players plays the same number of 3's games and 2's games.

Thanks for your help!

To have something with whist-style balance I think that there would need to be 45 rounds, with each player having exactly 27 3x3 games and 18 2x2 games.  However, I guess this is too many rounds?  How would you feel if one player was always in the 3x3 game, but the other 9 players were balanced? I think there is a solution in 18 rounds for that.
