Primorye Vladivostok, who have won the club championship 6 times out of the last 10 championships, including an impressive 4 in-a-row, are eyeing up a chance to re-claim their title, and make history. 

Leading them to battle will be top Men’s Doubles pair of Vladimir Ivanov and Ivan Sozonov. By winning a 7th championship, it would equal current leaders, the legendary team of Gentofke BK (DEN). Although, the Russian side have a far superior number of runners-up finishes with 9. 

A triple crown
All eyes are on Issy Les Moulineaux BC, who are the top seeds and planning to continue their great form and secure a triple crown in Bialystok, Poland. Continued good form from Lucas Corvee and the Stoeva sisters will be pivotal to them regaining their championship. There will be fierce competition from fellow French team BC Chambly Oise, who have the veteren Robert Mateusiak and Aleksandra Walaszek playing on a home court, and strong Women's Singles options in Kirsty Gilmour and Beatriz Corrales.
