Teams of six girls and eight boys from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales compete against each other as one team.

A match consists of seven foursomes and fourteen singles, each over 18 holes, with the foursomes being played first.

The scores are calculated by match results with each team scoring one point for a match win and half a point for a halved match.

When two or more teams have scored an equal number of match points the positions shall be determined by the number of individual game points (including games halved). If still a tie, the team with the highest number of individual game wins (excluding games halved) will be used.
