After the City of Lisbon defected hosting the 1969 Universiade, the games were assigned to Turin to be held next year.

Format of Competition

The scoring in all the events was basically the same, as for gymnastics events at the Summer Olympics. Each country was allowed to enter a team of eight gymnasts, but not more than six of them were allowed to participate in all exercises. Nations with incomplete teams, could enter one to three gymnasts for the individual competition. Six best gymnasts on the apparatus in the team competition (by sum of two scores - for compulsory and optional routine) qualified for that apparatus finals. The new feature of the competition was in women's events: each of them was judged by four judges. The highest and lowest marks were dropped and an average of two remaining marks constituted the score.

The scoring in the team competition was: five best scores constituted the team's score for the routine; these scores constituted the overall team's totals.
