Badminton Ranking System for Friendly games?

We have a group of 15-16 Badminton players who play double every weekend. The players are individual and choose the partner player randomly while playing. We are thinking to build a ranking system to the players. Is there a formula we can adapt to decide the play order and rank the players?

Providing that teams are not fixed, Elo (and Glicko too) does not fit your needs, because it’s designed for 1-on-1 matches only.

You need something that manages both team performance and players’ rating, as TrueSkill or rankade, our free-to-use rating system. Here’s a comparison between aforementioned ranking systems.

If you’re interested in use (more than in development), you should give a try to rankade. It can manage small to large playing groups, and it features rankings, stats, and more. We host many badminton groups/clubs, as well as other sports/games ones (here’s our dojo).
