Competition Format

In Malaysia, 10 men's and 10 women's teams are divided in pools of 5 and seeded automatically based on the 3x3 Federation Ranking at the cut-off date of 22 June.

All teams play every other in their respective pools. The best 4 in each groups qualify for the quarter-finals.

In case teams are tied in the pools, the tie-breakers are as follows:

1. Most wins (or win ratio in case of unequal number of games in inter-pool comparison);  
2. Head-to-head confrontation (only taking win/loss into account);
3. Most points scored in average (without considering winning scores of forfeits).

If teams are still tied after those three steps, the one(s) with the highest seeding win(s) the tie-breaker.

After the pools, the teams play knock-out games all the way to the final.

Pool games are played on Days 1 & 2, and the knock-out games on Day 3.
