The playing system

Teams are ranked and seeded into 3 divisions of 24 teams each, based on their performance at the previous World Championship Team Event in 2008 and their current World Ranking.

After the ranking list has been determined, the top 24 teams are allocated to the Championship Division, whilst the teams ranked 25-48 are allocated to the second division and teams ranked 49-72 are allocated to the third division.

All other teams are allocated to the fourth division.

Only the 24 teams in the Championship Division can compete for the World title.

 

Play then takes place in two stages.

The first stage comprises of the 24 teams in each division being seeded and drawn into four groups of six teams. Each group of six teams plays a complete round robin competition (five matches per team).

The second stage involves the top three teams from each group progressing into a knockout competition for their division, to play for places 1-12. The teams finishing fourth, fifth and sixth in their groups will play in a knockout competition for their division to play for places 13-24.

The winners of each group (4 teams) will move directly into the Quarter Finals of the knockout competition.

Team matches are the best of five singles.

Singles matches are the best of five games.
