This tournament also served as a qualifier for the 2012 Olympics, with the finalists and the team finishing in third position earning a spot. However, because England finished in the top three, the fourth team (Belgium) qualified instead, as England cannot qualify as a nation for the Olympics (they automatically participated as Great Britain).[3]

The hosts Germany won its seventh title by defeating the Netherlands 4–2 in the final.[4] The defending champions England won the bronze medal by defeating Belgium 2–1.
