Summary: 
Sports scheduling concerns how to construct a schedule of a sports competition mathematically. Many sports competitions are held as round-robin tournaments. In this paper, we consider a particular class of round-robin tournaments. We report some properties of round-robin tournaments and enumerate home-away tables satisfying some practical requirements by computer search.
