The top three teams in each pool will move into a six-team championship pool, and from there, the top four teams will go into the semifinals Saturday at 1 p.m., with first playing fourth and second playing third.

The semifinal winners will then play for gold and silver, while the semifinal losers will play for bronze, at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Additionally, the teams that don’t make the playoffs will take part in a mixed doubles competition all day Saturday.
