Senior Trials

2021/2022 Trials

Senior European Trials - Coventry Bridge Club

A pairs trial will be held 11th-14th March 2022 to select the Seniors team for the 2022 Europeans. The top three pairs in the trial will be guaranteed selection.

The team will be part funded - that is to say that, in addition to the entry fee and uniforms, they will receive a (yet to be decided) sum towards expenses.

Entries are £135 per person

Eligible players who have qualified in the Mixed or Women's categories are still permitted to enter the Seniors trial, but if such a player qualifies in this event they must relinquish the spot earned in the earlier trial.

    Eligibility criteria

    In 2017 the World Bridge Federation's Executive Council began to raise the age requirement for Senior players to 65 over an 8 year period in accordance with the following schedule: - Born in 1957 or earlier for the championship in 2018 - Born in 1958 or earlier for the championships in 2019 and 2020 - Born in 1959 or earlier for the championships in 2021 and 2022 - Born in 1960 or earlier for the championships in 2023 and 2024 - Born in 1961 or earlier for the championships in 2025 and 2026 The European Bridge League and Bridge Great Britain have changed the eligibility criteria for their Seniors competitions in line with this. Therefore, players need to be born in 1959 or earlier to play in the Teltscher Trophy in 2021.
