Please note the regulations in respect of late play.

The organisers reserve the right to recommence the 2nd and 4th sessions on Friday and Saturday and the third session on Sunday earlier if possible thus extending the lunch break or finishing earlier.

The event will comprise 12 pairs playing a complete round robin of 14 boards over the three days. In accordance with the regulations which will be published on this page, the top three pairs will, subject to ratification, be the Australian Seniors Team for designated events in 2002.

All matches will be played with screen tables and written bidding. Dummy will be
asked to record the play to the first four+ tricks to allow journalists to report on the tournament.

As the format is a round robin, except for the last two matches, appeals may not be heard immediately following the match in which the appeal is involved and will be heard at the first convenient opportunity by an appeals committee appointed by the convenor which will NOT include participants.
