Team[edit]

Sixteen teams, including one team from each of six continents and the host NOC, qualified the team events.[2] The qualification of an NOC was based on the number of the qualified players and the ranking of the 2012 World Team Championships. The 2012 World Team Championships were held from March 25 to April 1, 2012 in Dortmund, Germany. A total of fourteen quota places per gender were reserved for completing qualified teams representing NOCs with less than three qualified individual athletes. Eight men's quotas and four women's quotas remained unused, and were transferred to the singles competition of the same gender and added to the Final Qualification Tournament.
