I need a computer/randomizer program for a volleyball tournament that shuffles 36 players to play or sit out within 12 games.

1) We have 2 volleyball courts, 4 sides (Red & Green; Yellow & Blue).
2) We have 36 players. 6 teams of 6 players per team. 24 players would play on 4 teams on the 2 courts for each game. 12 players would sit out each game. Each team will consist of 6 different players each game.
3) Each player would have a number and would play on the team and court color each game.
4) There would be a total of 12 games. Each player would play 8 and sit out 4 of the 12 games. Each player will play twice on each court color. No player will play more than 2 games in a row.
5) With 36 players, 1 player would play 8 games with 5 other players each game.

We would also like to have the program sort for: 36 players (6 teams of 6 players per team); 30 players (6 teams of 5 players per team); 24 players (6 teams of 4 players per team); 24 players (4 teams of 6 players per team); 20 players (4 teams of 5 players per team) and 16 players (4 teams of 4 players per team).

I would like the program to be able to run on a laptop computer.
Thanks for you assistance or comments.
