In the semi-final games the team ranked number 1 will play against the team ranked number 4, and the team ranked number 2 will play against the team ranked number 3. The winners of the semi-final games will play in the Gold / Silver medal game. The losers of the semi-final games will play in the Bronze medal game. The team winning the Gold medal will qualify for the 2003 World Curling Championship.
