The playing system

Teams were 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 had been determined, the top 24 teams were allocated to the Championship Division, whilst the teams ranked 25-48 were allocated to the second division and teams ranked 49-72 were allocated to the third division.

Only the 24 teams in the Championship Division competed for the World title.

 

Play then took place in two stages.

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

The second stage involved 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 played in a knockout competition for their division for places 13-24.

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

Team matches were the best of five singles.

Singles matches were the best of five games.
