With all but one nation (from the Pan American continent) from each gender now qualified, teams now know who they will be up against in this truly global competition.
Wednesday 7 February provides an action-packed start to the event, with 24 matches taking place throughout the day including defending women’s champions Netherlands taking on Switzerland and Kazakhstan and men’s 2015 runners up Austria taking on Belgium and South Africa.
Another 24 matches take place the following day before the final men’s and women’s Pool matches conclude on Friday 9 February. The men’s Quarter Finals then take place that evening.
