The tournament comprises two-person men's and women's teams competing for $5,000 in prize money. The men's winners will split $900, the women's winners $700.

Play will begin each day at 9 a.m. On Saturday matches are expected to continue until 5 p.m. On Sunday the women's championship match will begin about 3 p.m., with the men's title match immediately following.

There is no admission charge.
