R. Iran, in the team «D» – of Belgium, Italy, Belarus and St.-Petersburg. To equalize the number of players in each team, two teams were straightened by the members of the Organization Committee. In the first semifinal the «Reds» (team «B») beat the «Whites» (team «A») with the score 2:0. The second semifinal the «Blues» won the «Yellows» with the same score. In the match for the 3rd place, the «Whites» defeated the tired «Yellows» team – 10:0 and in the final the «Reds» got chance to win the match against the «Blues» with the minimal score 0:1.
