On the match day, each participating team fields two doubles pair, Pair 1 and Pair 2. Each pair plays one (1) superset against opposing pair. Two points are awarded for each superset won. Each pair plays a total of two (2) supersets and each team plays a total of four (4) supersets; therefore, the highest set score to be achieved is eight (8). Two (2) bonus points are awarded to the team who garners the most number of supersets. The highest score for the match will thus be ten (10). In the event of a 2-2 scores, the bonus points will be awarded to the team who has won more games. A superset is won by the team reaching eight (8) games with a tiebreaker is played when the score is tied at eight (8) all. In the event of a tie, the bonus point is split between the teams with a result of 5/5. The complete description and rules of the LTS format can be found in our LTS rules.
