The tournament has been given a stand-alone slot in the calendar, separate from the men’s event, and will benefit from enhanced television coverage.

It is also returning to its traditional five-round format following last season’s truncated version which saw the sides split into two pools of three.

All 15 matches will be broadcast in the UK by the BBC, with games to be shown on a mix of terrestrial TV and iPlayer.
