A match between the Netherlands and Denmark in the 2012 EC

All players who participate in a European or World Championship, need to be classified. Depending on the outcome of the tests, an athlete will be allocated to class 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0. The higher the class, the less limitation the athlete’s impairment has on his/her sports performance. Since every player has been allocated a class, teams will have to create a line-up that exists out of a maximum of 12.0 points.
