The United Cup is adopting a new format this summer, with ties now consisting of one men’s singles match, one women’s singles match and a mixed doubles match. This ensures a result will be determined in each session.
Group winners from the round-robin stage in each city advance to the quarterfinals, with one quarterfinal spot in each city awarded to the best runner-up in that city.
Winners then progress to the semifinals and finals in Sydney, which will be played on 6 and 7 January.
Tickets for the United Cup group stage and quarterfinals go on sale at 5pm local time today (Wednesday 25 October).
Group stage adult prices start from $40 and from $20 for children 3-12 years of age. Family passes (two adults and two children) start from $100.
