Floor plan

Competition format

The teams are seeded according to their finishing position and the event begins with the quarter-finals.

The event is a progressive knockout format – so the quarter-final winners go through to the semi-finals, while the losing teams go on to compete for positions 5 to 8.

After the semi-finals, the losers play off for third and fourth positions and the winners go into the final to determine who lifts the trophy. Once all the play-offs are complete, a final finishing order from 1 to 8 is known.

In each team match, there are up to seven individual matches – six singles and one doubles – the doubles match is the third one to be played. The matches will be played to a result – ie the first team to win four matches.

Each team consists of four players, three of whom will compete in the singles. Any two players can play in the doubles.
