Default A crazy idea.

Today this idea came up in my mind, what do you think for Wimbledon to make Mixed double tournament, we will predict mixed doubles matches and will play only doubles, it will be just for fun. The only rule will be that the team should be one male and female player. No ranking, no points at the end, just for fun. What do you think?

Default Re: A crazy idea.

To make it even more interesting I suggest that the male/female pairs should be drawn at random, so players don't play with their regular partners (which are often MM or FF anyway)

maybe but as you said most patners are from the same gender... But people can choose their patners, i would suggest for just have a random draw for people that dont have or dont find a patner to the mixed doubles

I like the idea!!

I also think it would be interesting since it is just for fun if all pairing are drawn randomly.

First 32 male and female to confirm get put into random draw.

I definitely think we could find 32 females. But there will probably be 100 males wanting to play so how would we decide who plays? Instead of a random draw, maybe you let the females choose their partner?
