Hello Jamie,

Myself and at least one mate will be coming down but I'm looking to rope a few more in if I can.

Time for a stupid question but what does DYP stand for and what will the format be?

Hi Adam,

DYP stands for "Draw Your Partner". This means you turn up and you get drawn with a random partner. It's seeded - which also means that the pool is split into two players: those with higher rankings and those without - and one is drawn from each pool per team. This ensures the best players don't get drawn to play together and keeps the event fairer.

The format will depend on numbers, but will probably be a group stage followed by a knockout competition for the top teams in each group.

Hope to see you there!
