The Filipino Team’s first assignment is against Denmark’s Martin Larsen and Kasper Kristoffersen. China, meanwhile, will open its title-retention bid against India in the tournament’s first match Tuesday.

Other teams who will see action on opening day are: England’s Darryl Peach and Mark Gray vs. Malta’s Tony Drago and Alex Borg; NetherlandsNiels Feijen and Nick van den Berg vs. Belgium’s Serge Das and Noel Bruynooghe; Finland’s Mika Immonen and Markus Juva vs. Korea’s Jeong Young-Hwa and Kim Woong-Dae; Italy’s Fabio Petroni and Bruno Muratore vs. Peru’s Jhon Lopez and Juan Francisco Vega; and Switzerland’s Marco Tschudi and Dimitri Jungo vs. Hong Kong’s Lee Chenman and Kenny Kwok.
