In Group D Spanish CTT Balaguer - Villart Logistic showed no mercy in Group D. TING TING Wang, YON LAN Li and Carmen DORCA LAREDANA won all three matches. ADC Ponta do Pargo failed to meet the expectation. No. Two seed lost their encounter against the group winners and suffered by the hands of TT Vedrinamur, the hosts of the Group. Morgane GUIDON, Natacha KOZULAP, Alicia DUBOIS and Stephanie PREUDHOMME guided the team to the next stage.
