Rosters[edit]

Preliminary round[edit]

Teams played a round-robin schedule within the pool and those with the top four point totals advanced to a knockout round. Teams were awarded three points for a 3–0 or 3–1 win, two points for a 3–2 win, one point for a 3–2 loss, and zero points for a 3–0 or 3–1 loss.[2] If at the end of pool play teams are tied the tiebreakers are (1) most wins, (2) set win ratio, (3) points ratio, and (4) head-to-head.[2] If three or more teams are tied, the tiebreakers are applied only to the matches between tied teams.[2]
