The competition is between teams of four playing 2-wood rinks.The teams are divided into two groups, with different start times.

The teams in each group are drawn on assigned rinks for the first round and play 8 ends, with points awarded for each end won or drawn as well as for an overall win or draw.

After the first round, the top-scoring teams in each group play each other in a round-robin format, with 8 ends in each round; the lower-scoring teams in each group also play each other in a round-robin format. Points are awarded as for the first round.
