Single venue fixture requirements:

Table allocation is required to ensure that there is a balanced allocation of tables to each team.
This is particularly appropriate in cases in which lighting or other circumstances varies at the venue.
An even spread of tables for both home and away games as well as overall matches are used whenever possible.

Multiple venue fixture requirements:

Pairing is required for teams that share a venue.
The fixtures with teams 1/2 alternating and teams paired allow optimal fixturing for use of a venue.
Fixtures can easily be aligned for multiple grades with multiple teams using a venue.

Home and Away runs are kept to a minimum.
Runs of 3 home or 3 away games are avoided where possible.
This is also useful for single venue competitions using the home team to provide balls and umpire the first match.
