The 2016 World ParaVolley Intercontinental Tournament

 

The 2016 World ParaVolley Intercontinental Tournament is a Rio2016 Paralympic Games qualifier. There is one Rio2016 qualification spot available for men and one for women. The women's sitting volleyball team has already qualified for the Paralympic Games but men's team is still looking for a spot.

When

March 17th to 23rd inclusive, 2016

Where

Zhe Jiang Anji Longshan Sports Centre, Anji, Huzhou, P R China

Who

28 teams (women and men) including 13 already qualified for Rio 2016 

Format

Rio qualified teams will play against each other and non-qualified teams will play against each other (both men and women) in separate groups due to the large number of teams entered. Thus all 4 groups will play round robins.  Then the Rio qualified teams play 1v4 and 2v3 semi-finals and winners play for the IC gold, losers for bronze.  The non-qualified teams play 1v2 at the end of the round robin (M+W).
