The full card for Argentina has not yet been set with three from San Diego, Ireland, Austria and Canada travelling as well as three teams from a tournament played in January in Singapore. Hosts Singapore beat Poland in the final of that event with Japan beating Oman to the third place.
A third tournament is coming to a conclusion this weekend in Cape Town, where France and South Africa have topped their pools and look likely along with one other nation to be joining the other six teams for the June tournament.
