The IMSA Elite Games will be held in China from 5th — 12th January 2016*. The winning gold, silver and bronze medallists from the Bermuda Bowl and Venice Cup together with the Chinese team will be invited to compete in this extremely prestigious tournament, provided at least four of the team members are available to participate.
If this is not possible then the place will be offered to the next placed team. If the Chinese team qualifies in either category in Chennai, then the next placed team will be invited.
* Due to organizing reasons, the event has been postponed. The new date has not been fixed yet: likely the event will take place between February/March 2016. (Update Dicember 8, 2015)
