Around here, the only scenario where you'd have play on the same day would be if the players were playing "up" in our weekend league...and that wouldn't fit the hypothetical description of "strong" players (they'd only likely be considered that "at-level"). Another weak possibility would be the partners being in the 18+ and 40+ leagues with some league season overlap...but that's a stretch.
Not a stretch, at least in the PNW section. We have our 18+ and 40+ leagues going on at the same time right now and quite a few folks are playing in both and there is no provision in the scheduling to preclude conflicts.
