The competition will start with a round robin. Just one group, the same for all the 8 teams, which will face each other in the first 7 legs of the 2003 season. As we said, four singles and one doubles will be played for each match. The semifinals will be played in the 8th leg by the 4 teams who win more matches throughout the season. The two winners will play the final during the off-season with the average values of the 2003 season (check this year’s World Championships for more details about this system).
