Free-Play Age Limit Raised for Juniors

Thanks to action by the ACBL Board of Directors, more Junior players will be able to play free in regional events at NABCs, starting with the 2012 Spring NABC.

The ACBL Board approved a measure to provide free-play coupons to ACBL members 18 and younger for regional events. The previous upper age limit was 15.

Phyllis Harlan, chairperson of the ACBL Junior Task Force, said the Board’s decision “reaffirms the League’s commitment to Junior players.”

Junior players who wish to compete in nationally rated events can take advantage of the $10 coupons available to eligible ACBL members for any NABC event. Players 20 and younger are entitled to the $10 coupons, as are players up to age 25 who are full-time students.
