Seniors Age

On 19 August 2017, the World Bridge Federation announced that the minimum age to take part in WBF Seniors events will rise progressively from 60 to 65 over a period of years, starting with an increase from 60 to 61 in 2018.

The ABF will obviously need to take this into account in deciding the minimum age for Seniors events in Australia. However, given the short notice, the ABF will not make any change to the minimum age to enter the Bobby Evans Senior Teams.

Players who enter this event are advised that if they are below the WBF qualifying age, they will not be eligible to seek to take part in WBF Senior events until they reach that age. This may mean those players cannot get Playoff Qualifying Point awards from this event.

Entries may now be paid online using the eWay secure gateway.

Early bird discount of $40 per team for each Teams entry (Open, Restricted, Women's, Seniors') which is fully paid by October 6.
