Each team is comprised of 2-3 men and 2-3 women. Team matches consist of 6 sets, with one set each men’s doubles, women’s doubles, men's singles, women's singles and 2 sets of mixed doubles. Players determine the order of sets.
The first team to reach five games wins each set and a nine-point tiebreaker (first team to win 5 points, players change sides after 4 points) is played if a set reaches four all.
One point is awarded for each game won, a bonus point is awarded for each set won and three bonus points are awarded the winner of the match.
If the set score is tied 3-3, a 12-point "Supertiebreaker" (first team to win 7 points, players change sides after 6 points) will determine the winner of the match.
No point is given for winning the "Supertiebreaker" other three bonus points for winning the match.
The maximum number of points that can be won in a match is 39.
All games and tie-breakers are won by a margin of one point. Game scoring is no-ad (first team to win four points wins the game). Should the game reach deuce (3 points each), the receiver chooses the side from which he/she will receive serve. In mixed doubles, the serve is always gender to gender at deuce.
