Format
This is a Multiple Partners Tournament, where individuals compete with randomly selected partners, to be played over seven (7) rounds of one Set each round.

A special system will be used whereby at all times the player ranked 1st at the start of a new round, will always partner with the player ranked 3rd to play against the player ranked 2nd partnered with the player ranked 4th on table 1.

On table 2 the player ranked 5th will partner with 7th against player ranked 6th partnered with 8th, etc.

This principle will apply for each Round except the first Round where the table assignments will be drawn by a computer program.
