Doubles PAW (Choose-a-Double) - what about it?

Hello people,
I was surfing in WTAWorld and saw a nice game called Choose-a-Double, which seems exactly like PAW but for doubles matches.
As I like doubles and as I'd like to see a game like this, I'd like to gather interest to run this. Is there anyone interesed?

Re: Doubles PAW (Choose-a-Double) - what about it?

I loved the idea Filipe i was thinking in create a doubles game like Tennis Tipping, but PAW is great! Anyway, i don't think it should be a good idea for me to help running it... i've been runing FITD, PAW, Challenger Challenge and Interclubs lately... but please kepp this idea alive!

It's okay VaiBrasil, i'd probably be able to run 1-tourney-per-week if necessary.
Like TT? What did you have in my mind?

off-topic: did you see my post in Challenger Challenger thread?

yes, answered

i thought in a game called Doubles Revolution. The same format as TT, but with the doubles matches of the tournament. It would only have doubles draws. Players could play with different partners each week, but they should be encouraged to have permanent partners. I think it would be cool

I was thinking about running a test event in one of the last TMS of the year (Paris or Madrid) just to not let the idea die.
What do you guys think? I want to have all opinions available to make this game better.

Seen the good reception for this game, I believe I will do it. do you guys think Madrid is too close? I think it is fine but... oh, it will be PAW-like cause I am not too experieced on managing TT tourneys as I am with PAW
