Entries should be made through the NBOs and the Zones,
not directly to the WBF by interested individuals.
Zones/NBOs should apply to the WBF Youth Committee
no later than 15 May 2003,
either by completing and returning the appropriate form or electronically.
Online registration has been terminated
A maximum of 200 Juniors will be admitted to the
Camp. Since there are usually great variations in the number of
entries received by the various Zones/ NBOs, a temporary limit of
50 participants is set per Zone (other than Zone 1). If, after the
deadline of 15 May 2003, there are still some vacancies, the limit
will be raised.
As the result of their nationals winning the
2001 WBF Youth Awards, Greece, Israel, The Netherlands
and Poland are entitled to one free place in the 2003 Camp.
Junior Camps are not mainly addressed to champion
players but to the anonymous mass of lesser mortals. Therefore,
the level of play should not be regarded as a qualification.
Participants should, in general, be 17-23 years old.
This is a guideline rather than a strict limit. NBOs wishing to
enter people who are one or two years younger, will be advised to
send a group leader whose primary function will be to take special
care of these young people. On the other hand, the Youth Committee
is prepared to allow older participants, nominated by countries
where Junior Bridge is not highly developed. In any case, the standard
age limit of 25 years (born on or after 1 January 1978)
cannot, of course, be exceeded.
• Entry Fee
There is an entry fee of SF
100 (one hundred Swiss francs) per person which
will be charged by the EBL to the participant’s NBO after
the Camp, if it is not paid on site.
