The format of the Tournament is that the pairs will be formed by drawing 'out of the hat' then those pairs will be allocated an handicap depending on the combined abilities of the players in each pair. On Thursday morning the initial Draw took place.
The pairs have been placed in one of four Groups that will conduct a 'round robin' and the top 2 pairs from each group will then go to a final Knockout Competition.
