Competition rules Saturday: each team will play two running series of 3 games each. Sunday: teams will be divided into two sections, based on the position.

The top 4 teams of each group will form two groups composed by 4 teams (the 1° and the 3° of one group with the 2° and the 4° of the other group) and will play a round-robin format, starting from 0 pins, with a bonus of 60 pins for a win and 30 pins for a tie.
