## KNOCKOUT COMPETITON IN ASP!!!

I have to design a system which will administer a knockout competition such as a tennis tournament. The system needs to allow the user to:<BR><BR>Enter teams/players - 16 teams/players<BR><BR>Generate the matches to be played in each round - ie 1st round/2nd round/Quarter&#039;s/semi&#039;s/final<BR><BR>Record results - User should be able to enter scores, program works out results and enters teams/players for next round...<BR><BR>Any Ideas? Anyone done this before?????<BR> <BR>

## Good homework, isn't it?

Try *describing* the task in words, the way you would solve it by hand, one step at a time.<BR><BR>Sample:<BR><BR>(1) Make a form to hold 16 teams.<BR>(2) Assign pairs in "seed" order, so that the sum of the seed numbers is 17 for each pair.<BR>*OR*<BR>(2) Assign pairs in random order.<BR>*OR*<BR>(2) Assign pairs as adjacent teams in the list of 16 (i.e., 1 vs. 2, 3 vs. 4, etc.)<BR>...<BR><BR>It really isn&#039;t more than a dozen steps or so. Write it down. Start implementing it (making the starting form should be a piece of cake, no?). THEN when you get stuck, come back and show us where you are and what you have working.<BR><BR>And be very thankful your teacher didn&#039;t ask for you to do a double elimination tournament.<BR><BR>
