d'Orsi Trophy   Terry Brown-Peter Buchen, Pauline Gumby-Warren Lazer, Avi Kanetkar-Bruce Neill, npc George Bilski


There are 22 teams in each event. After 3 matches a day over 7 days, the top 8 in each event will proceed to the knockout stage.

Along with Australia by default, eight other nations have a team in each event, France as host, Italy, Sweden, USA by right, Argentina, Brazil, China, New Zealand by default, and Egypt.

Following the qualification stage, the Transnational Teams will commence. This event is open to all, with cross national teams allowed.
