- the format will be: First to Four games sets (Tie-Break at 3-All), Best-of-Five sets, with No-Ad scoring
- players will be instructed to use a towel rack at the back of the court to remove the onus on ball kids to handle towels

This tournament and its format aims to attract new and younger fans into the sport, while at the same time retaining the sport’s traditional fan-base, by being shorter and more engaging;
- a ‘free movement’ policy will apply for the crowd – spectators will be able to move freely (except behind baselines) in and out of the stadium during matches to decrease entry restriction and create a relaxed and friendly environment
- players and coaches will be able to communicate at certain points in the match
