Summary

A total of 16 teams were invited to participate in the team tournament. The highest-ranked NOC from each continent that already contained two qualified players for the singles had a third player added to make up their team. These six teams were joined by the ten highest-ranked NOCs from any continent.

All matches were played in the so-called Beijing System: two singles matches, one doubles, and up to two more singles - if required, as the first team to win three matches won the contest. All matches were played to the best-of-five sets. China’s [Ma Long], [Zhang Jike] and [Xu Xin] lost only one match in the whole tournament, when Xu lost 2-3 to Japan’s [Jun Mizutani] in the final. Germany claimed the bronze medal, just as they had done at London in 2012.
