Format of events

For the team events a division format was used.

16 teams made up the Championships Division whilst 16 teams were in the Challenge Division and the remaining teams made up a Standard Division.

Only teams in the Championships Division could win the title of European Champions.

In the Championships Division, the teams were seeded into four groups. Each team competed against the other three teams in their group and matches were the best of five sets.

The winner and runner-up of each group then advanced to the quarter finals whereupon the competition was a straight knock-out, best of five sets.

An Association could only enter one team in each team event and they could enter up to 5 players in a men's team and up to 5 players in a women's team.

Seeding was on the basis of the final positions in the previous European Championships.
