The tournament took place between 13–24 June at Estádio Universitário in Lisbon, Portugal. Argentina Jaguars were the overall winners.

The competition format was a round-robin whereby each team played each of the other 3 teams once. The competition was played over three match days, with two matches played consecutively on each day.
