The competition, which is being held in Slovenia, is being played under a new 7 set scoring, 15 point scoring format.

Argentina’s Sol Piccolo and Egypt’s Aya Elshamy were their country’s top scorers with 24 points and 15 points, respectively in the game which saw Argentina win 4-3 (15-10, 15-6, 16-14, 14-16, 13-15, 11-15, 15-11).
