What's the best way to decide on contenders for a doubles team?

Please can you describe the most effective way of deciding on the best doubles trialists at a club. Perhaps you could do an article on the clearest way of deciding on contenders for a doubles team.

I've heard of one method only : you play 4 members of the squad at a time ; get them to play 2 sets, getting the 2 stronger players to swap sides after the first set, and totalling the aggregate scores after those 2 sets in order to rank the players in order of doubles skill...

Any better ideas?

Hi Rick,

We put this question out on our Facebook page to see what other coaches had to say and one coach recommended that it is a good idea to have a left hander and right hander combination in a team.
