World Bridge Games, 3-17 September 2016
The World Bridge Games, previously known as the Olympiad, will be held in Wroclaw, Poland.
The International Committee would like to receive expressions of interest from Teams (or Pairs wishing to be considered for a team) for the Open, Senior and Women's Teams at the World Bridge Games. These should be lodged with Anne Perkins by April 26th 2016. This will allow us to make informed decisions based on previous performances in domestic team events, international trials and internationals without necessarily having to hold trials. It was agreed at the recent Council meeting that there would be no funding for this event.
There is also the opportunity to enter a Mixed Team which is being introduced for the first time in 2016, but there will be no funding for this or for any Pairs wishing to play in the Pairs events. More information (PDF)
