SKW 1 dominated Group B as they won all their matches with a 3-0 scoreline. Behind them were CFC 2, who could have won all their matches except for a tough encounter against SKW 1 in which they eventually succumbed. SFC 1 and CFC 4 finished third and fourth in the group.

Cohen's second team put up an impressive performance against SKW 2 in the third and fourth place match.

CFC 3 lost 2-0 against SFC 1 in the fifth and sixth place battle. DTS, CFC 4 and SFC 2 competed for the remaining seventh and ninth spots in the round-robin stages.



Finale

Spectators were offered a high-quality final between CFC 1 and SKW 1.

SKW 1 got off to a better start in the game and quickly gained ground.

CFC 1 had to call a timeout to regroup after trailing 7-3 in the first set. The decision paid dividends as CFC 1 started to recover some ground but eventually lost as SKW 1 pressed harder to win the set. CFC 1 came back stronger in the second set with an improved performance, but had difficulty finishing the set with a score of 10-5. However, their main attacker Rico K├╝hnle-Kreitz brought the set to an end with a powerful serve to bring the score to 11-9 in favour of CFC 1.

In the third set, the reigning champions left SKW 1 with no chance and won 11-4. The fourth set was exciting with spectacular rallies and terrific defensive action.
