The format

The event will consist of three disciplines and a grand finale. It will be a match to 25 point, where in each discipline you collect points in the match. There will be a cap at 20 points, so if one team reaches 20 points in the discipline, they cannot score more points, before the final, but they can keep the opponents from scoring points.

 
Speed: 3 x 5 points.
Doubles: 2 x 3 points.
Singles: 3 x 3 points.

 

All of the matches in each discipline plays simultaneously in the VIP Arena, and are being recorded and transcribed.
