Competition formatEdit

Twelve qualified nations were drawn into two groups, each consisting of six teams. Each game result merits a corresponding point:

Result Points
Win 2
Loss 1
Loss via default* 1
Loss via forfeiture** 0

*The team has fewer than two players available to play on the court at some point during the game.
**A team cannot put forward at least five players at the start of the game, or its own actions prevent play from being resumed.

In case teams are tied on points, the tiebreaking criteria are used, in order of first application:[3]

  1. Results of the games involving the tied teams (head-to-head records)
  2. Goal average of the games involving the tied teams
  3. Goal average of all of the games played
  4. Points scored
  5. Drawing of lots

The teams with the four best records qualified for the knockout stage, which was a single-elimination tournament. The semifinal winners contested for the gold medal, while the losers played for the bronze medal.
