This tournament is a 16 team, no elimination event. Each team is guaranteed four matches, with match play results from the two day competition determining the order of finish - Tournament Champions through sixteenth place. The format closely resembles the traditional college match format. There will be 5 singles matches and 3 doubles matches. Each match consists of five singles sets and three doubles sets. In event of a 4-4 tie, games will be counted to determine the winning team. 8 game pro-sets singles and doubles, regular scoring with a 12-point tiebreaker played at 7-7. The losing teams will play 6 game sets in their 2nd match, 12 point tie breaker at 6 all. Singles players can also play doubles, however, substitutions are allowed between singles and doubles. The #1 singles player must play #1 doubles (if playing doubles), the #2 singles player must play either #1 or #2 doubles (if playing doubles). In singles, a no stacking rule is in effect. Teams must play their best player at #1, second best at #2 and so on. Awards will be given to the top three finishing teams in the Main Draw and the winner of the Consolation Draw.
