2023 U31 Qualification
This event is for teams that want to represent the USBF in the U31 category at the 2023 World Youth Bridge Team Championships in Veldhoven, Netherlands, July 31 to Aug. 7. The USBF is entitled to enter 2 teams in this event, and will not be paying expenses (except the entry fee) for either team. To be eligible to enter the event, a team must:
1. Have 6 players, at least 4 of whom will not attain their 31st birthday in 2023, and the other 2 of whom may be one year older.
2. Have a Non-playing Captain.
3. Pay their own expenses for the event.
If more than 2 teams wish to enter the 2023 U31 event, the USBF will hold an online qualifying event to select the top 2. The dates for the qualifying event will be in April, and will be selected by the players. The format will depend on the number of teams entered, but will most likely be a Round Robin.
To enter the qualification event, go to https://usbf.org/2023-u31-qualification/enter-2023-u31-qualification and complete the entry form. Note that all of the players on your team must plan to go to the WYBTC; if a player drops off of a qualified team, the USBF Board will review their reasons and decide whether the team should still be allowed to go. Entries will close on March 31st.
