World Teams University Bridge Championships

The second World Teams University Bridge Championships on BridgeBase Online will begin in October 2010. The first online University Teams Championships were held in 2008 / 2009, and attended by 16 teams from 4 continents. Italy won the final against Norway.

This is a knock out competition on the internet between countries where the schedule is determined by draw. A country can enter an unlimited number of teams. Your teams must be composed of between four to six university or school players and a captain must be indicated. For each player, you must enter: name, surname, date of birth, nationality, university or high school and country.

Your teams can participate under the following conditions:
- being at a university or high school (or one year after or before studies)
- being between17 and 28 years old
- having the nationality of the country you represent

Both captains have one month to schedule and play a match of 32 boards. The result must be sent directly after the match to Kuba Kasprzak at kubakasprzak@o2.pl with a copy to geert.magerman@telenet.be.

Results will be published on www.unibridge.org and the new Facebook account "Uni Bridge."

How to Enter

You can enter university bridge teams from now until October 31, 2010 by sending an e-mail to Kuba: kubakasprzak@o2.pl (with copy to geert.magerman@telenet.be). After receiving all entries and after the draw, each captain will be informed by the next match. This will start in November 2010.

We rely on your fair play and friendship, important values for FISU and WBF. Any violation against fair play will not be accepted and have severe consequences. If the Captains request it, Kuba will act as Tournament Director during the match.
