Circular 2 for APBF Championships 2017



Since the announcement of the 1st Circular for APBF Championships 2017, there have been many enquiries regarding to the number of Senior Teams from each NBO.


It was resolved during the Delegate Meeting in Beijing 2016 that:


"Considering the tight schedule of Senior teams in recent Championships due to increase

of participating teams, the Meeting agreed to restrict the number of teams per NBO to ONE.

NBOs may enter second teams if the tournament schedule allows additional teams.


In case numbers of second teams are more than capacity, teams will be selected by DRAW

from the  waiting list.


Australian Bridge Federation proposed the second team from host NBO to avoid odd number

of teams in Open and Women categories.  The Meeting discussed the proposal and agreed that host NBO may enter 2nd team or invite a team from APBF NBO."


At present KCBl, the host NBO, is planning up to 80 tables.  We may add Kids category as well if playing area and tournament schedule allow.


We hope this announcement clarifies ambiguity regarding to the number of Senior teams, and if there have been any misunderstandings or confusions, our sincere apology.


Sincerely yours,

HongSup Hahn, Chairman of the Organizing Committee
