Also, and I'm not trying to nit-pick, but I don't see how you can comply with not stacking if you don't play your best team at #1.
Based on what you said, if it was me I'd probably just come up with a schedule that included everyone the required matches, and mixed people around with different partners unless two people were adament about playing together. To avoid "stacking" and to avoid being too predictable so that your opponent can stack against you, I'd just randomly choose who plays on which court.
But, maybe I'm all wet.
Geezerguy, the two players I'm talking about are my weaker 2.5 players.
I guess I can put the two weaker 2.5s on court 3 against the weakest teams in the divisions. And maybe I can play each of them once with a weaker 3.0 player on court 3. Maybe they'll surprise me . . .
