All other divisions will consist of 8 teams playing in a giant
round robin format.
Teams will be a minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 players. Seeding is based on cumulative rating of the top-3 players.*
Only three designated players will play in each round. Teams will compete in a modified Olympic format, with best of 4 out of 7 matches (6 singles, 7th match will be doubles). All matches are 3 out of 5 games to 11 points.
Except the top-4 and bottom-4 seeded teams, all teams will play a qualification round on Saturday, May 28th at 9:00.
The top-rated player on teams with a rating difference of 400 or more points between the highest and lowest rated players must compete in at
least 20% of the matches after the preliminary round.
*The Tournament Committee may assign an estimated rating for an unrated player prior to the start of the tournament.
