New for the YOG!
The YOG competition had a round robin format in eight pools leading to a knockout competition with the eight pool winners.
There were two events – men’s singles and women’s singles. In each event, players played each other on a round-robin basis in eight pools of four players. The eight winners then played a knock-out competition to decide the medals.
Qualifying for the YOG competition was via the Youth Continental Championships, with a maximum of two men and two women from each country allowed to compete.
