06-May, Day THREE:
Semi-Finals Day -
it's England v France again
Both finals will be repeats of last year as England and
France won their semi-finals in the women's and men's events.
In the women's semis England went 2-0 up over
Netherlands to take a winning lead, and France did the same
against Wales to reach a third successive final - for England
it's 38 in 39 events.
The French men - without the
injured Mathieu Castagnet - eased past a German
team who rested their number one, then England went 2-0 up
against Scotland before Greg Lobban gave the Scots hope by
going 2-0 up against Chris Simpson. When Simpson levelled,
England had more games than the Scots could muster so the match

A much quieter day in Warsaw, as the
semi-finalists in both divisions were decided.

beat Wales 2-1 to settle the top places, while in Pool B France beat
Denmark 3-0 to top the group while Netherlands'
win over Ireland put them into the semis.

complete their three wins, while the Scots make the semis
ahead of Spain on countback thanks to the games they took
against the defending champions.
In Pool B England beat Germany
3-1 to make sure they finished top. Germany ake the semis in
second place following the draw between Netherlands and Finland.
Meanwhile Division Two action continued with the early
matches finishing off the men's pools and the quarter-finals
in the evening. The women's round robin continued with

04-May, Day ONE:
England and France through to semis
The 2016 edition of the Euro Team Champs kicked off in Warsaw
with the first rounds of pool play.
Division One top seeds England and France opened up
with two wins to clinch their places in the semi-finals, as did
Wales in Group A. The fourth semi-finalist will be decided in
the final rounds tomorrow.
In Men's Division One it's a similar story as France and
England both won both their opening matches, but after two-all
draws between Scotland/Spain and Germany/Netherlands the second
spot in the semis is likely to go to countback.
England aiming to regain
men's title in Warsaw ...
Europe's Elite players head for Poland this year as the European
Team Champs take place in Warsaw from 4th to 7th May.
For the first time in many years we can't use the "England
seeking another double" headline, since France's men finally won
the title last year in Denmark - and are seeded #1 on the
back of that win, which gives the groups a probably much-needed
That doesn't mean that another English double is off the menu
though, as their men will be desperate to regain the title they
won continuously from 1993 to 2014, and their women will be
looking to claim a sixth consecutive win (they've only ever
failed to win once).
