12 teams from levels B and C will be playing at this year's Cologne Open volleyball tournament.

To make sure all teams get a decent number of teams to play against in the prelimary round we are going to break teams up into six groups. The results of those matches will then determine the B+, B and C level groups in the main round.

In the main round you will playing in one of six groups based on your teams level. Matches continue until there's one winning team per group.

Male and mixed teams will both be playing with a male net-height.

Individual players are also welcome to register for the competition. We'll make sure to compose powerful teams from all single participants or simply add you to incomplete teams.
