Abstract

The paper describes an algorithm which uses mixed integer linear programming for assigning players to groups over a week, based on the availabilities of players and the number of times in the week that they are able to play. Whilst the coding of the algorithm has been done in R, an app has been developed which enables anybody to use it without needing to install R on their computer.
