Question
I have 11 couples and need a rotation where each couple plays each other for 9 or 10 months (whatever works best).

Answer
Hi,

The rotation below is for 11 pairs over a period of 11 months (you do not need to use the whole thing). One pair each month needs to sit out.

Month        Pair Matchups

 1        11-2  10-3  9-4  8-5  7-6  Pair 1 will sit out
 2        1-3   11-4 10-5  9-6  8-7  Sit out = 2
 3        2-4   1-5  11-6 10-7  9-8  Sit out = 3
 4        3-5   2-6  1-7  11-8 10-9  Sit out = 4
 5        4-6   3-7  2-8  1-9  11-10 Sit out = 5
 6        5-7   4-8  3-9  2-10 1-11  Sit out = 6
 7        6-8   5-9  4-10 3-11 2-1   Sit out = 7
 8        7-9   6-10 5-11 4-1  3-2   Sit out = 8
 9        8-10  7-11 6-1  5-2  4-3   Sit out = 9
 10       9-11  8-1  7-2  6-3  5-4   Sit out = 10
 11       10-1  9-2  8-3  7-4  6-5   Sit out = 11

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
