N.B. The Nigeria and Rwanda women's teams did not confirm their attendence before the confirmed entry list was issued while Cuba pulled out on the eve of the tournament.

*Sierra Leone replaced Angola after Angola did not confirm the participation before the confirmed entry list was issued.

**As Russia did not qualify directly through the CEV Continental Cup final, they were granted a host spot. In an effort to balance the pools an additional federation was added. A drawing of lots was conducted during the 2015 FIVB Beach Volleyball Commission where CEV was confirmed as the Confederation who would have the right to an additional spot in the above case. As Austria were ranked fourth at the CEV Continental Cup, they earned the berth.
