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 1958 or earlier to play in the Teltscher Trophy in 2019 and 2020.

No changes will be made to the entry criteria for EBU Congresses until 2019 - see here for details.
