There should be 5 people in each group. We can divide a group of 10 people into 2 teams of 5 in \frac{C^5_{10}*C^5_5}{2!}=126 ways (dividing by 2! because the order of the groups doesn't matter).

Answer: C.

here is a formula -http://gmatclub.com/forum/a-group-of-8-friends-want-to-play-doubles-tennis-how-many-55369.html#p689312
The number of ways in which mn different items can be divided equally into m groups, each containing n objects and the order of the groups is not important is -
(mn)!/(n!)^m*m!


10! /((5!)^2*2!) =126
