While qualifying for both events ended several weeks ago, each National Olympic Committee (NOC) had to confirm its qualifiers, the IGF stated. That process concluded on June 27 with all unused quota places reallocated based on the official qualification system.

The Netherlands was the only country to deny qualified athletes spots. Dutch Olympic officials did not allow Joost Luiten and Darius van Driel on the men’s side and Dewi Weber on the women’s to compete, in the belief that they would not have a reasonable chance to finish among the top eight in their respective events.

Anne van Dam, the highest ranked male or female Dutch player, was allowed to represent the Netherlands.

Luiten won a litigation hearing on July 2 that he thought would allow him to compete in France but the IGF said in a Tuesday statement that his spot (as well as the other two) had been reallocated based on the June 27 deadline and the International Olympic Committee would not increase the field size to accommodate the Dutch player.
