Format[edit]

  • In the preliminary round, each team played a single game, with the winner advancing to the final round. The losing teams played in the first repass round, while the losing team with the worst point margin played in the second repass round.
  • In the first repass round, four teams were paired again and played a single game where the winners advanced to the second repass round and the losing teams to the classification round. In the second repass round, a round-robin group of three teams was formed, where the top team advanced to the final round and the other two teams to the classification round.
  • In the classification round, a six-team round-robin group was formed to compete for the championship and second through sixth places in the final standings. In the classification round another round-robin group of four teams was formed to define seventh through tenth place in the final standings.
