Format

The World Cup's unique format includes doubles play, including an all-doubles opening round.

In the first round, the sixteen ties are played as a one-off best of nine legs tie between the pairs. The second round introduces singles play - the team captains select their running order, then two best of seven legs matches are played in the order determined by the blind selection. Matches are best of three, so if the same team wins both singles ties, the match is over. Should the scores be level, a best of seven legs doubles match decides the winner.

The quarter-finals and semi-finals are played in the same manner. There's a switch in format for the final - it becomes the best of five, with four singles games sandwiched by a doubles tie.
