- 4 divisions, each consisting of 2 groups of 5 teams (Total 80 players)
- Each group will be designated a single court for the whole day (court allocation will be decided by lucky draw prior to commencement of the tournament).
- Each group captain will be responsible for managing balls for the group and reporting the scores back to the Tournament Director.
- Within each group, each team will play a round robin of 4 matches of 1 standard set (first to 6 games with standard tie-break at 5-5).
- 2nd deuce is sudden death point.
- The winner and runner-up of each group will be determined by sets won. In the event of a tie on sets, the winner will be determined by the higher percentage of games won. ie. Games won divided by total games played (eg. 20 games won, 18 games lost = 20/(20+18) = 52.632%). In the event that it remains a tie, the winner of the head to head match will be deemed the winner.
- The winner of each group (in each division) will advance to their division final.
- The runner-up of each group (in each division) will play off for 3rd/4th.
