If anyone has good ideas, feel free to suggest.
I think that idea of having a maximum of 3 partners different during a season should be OK, cause if everyone teams up with 7 or 8 different players, imagine how the rankings would look
Of course, that would mean that if only people with whom you have already teamed up so far have entered a tournament, you could not play that tournament (a little tricky but it's necessary).
I could run the rankings and keep track of teams. I could also run the first event in Miami (assuming everything is agreed upon until then) and 1 or 2 more during the year, but I'd maybe have to withdraw from managing something in singles cause I'm also running Fed cup.
Since there would be so few events (13+1) it wouldn't be necessary to limit the number of tournaments you're allowed to play in one season. Team rankings would count for just one year (race system) while individual points earned in doubles would form roll-over rankings.
Bonus points would be:
200/150/100/75 for slams and
160/120/80 for other events.
During a tournament, points of a team are a sum of points earned by the two players (e.g. 31+24=55 for a team). For a final match number of games is guessed and the average of the two numbers guessed by the team members is used to solve ties (23+27=50/2=25). If two teams have the same average, the team with the fastest poster wins.
Well, I think I covered most of the issues. If you see some potential problems speak up
