Intercity League. Sixteen teams have been qualified for the knouk-out stage; the winners of the three qualification Group have been Egedal (Denmark), Ascoli Piceno, (Italy), and Niš (Serbia). Ascoli Piceno is title holder, but the players are not the same; only three of the winning team have remained: Piero Millevoi, Fabio Colasante and Paolo Enrico Garrisi. These three before made a threesome playing Eugenio Chiaradia’s Neapolitan Club; now Millevoi and Colasante make a Neapolitan Club pair, whereas Garrisi is pairing up with Patrizia Lo Martire, the new entry; they are playing standard style (for now).
