2020 World Bridge Games will be held in Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy. The Opening Ceremony will be held on Friday 21st August and the Closing Ceremony will be on Friday 4th September.
The World Bridge Games include National Open & Women’s Teams (since 1960), National Seniors Teams (since 2000), National Mixed Teams (since 2016) and National Open, Women ‘s, Seniors & Mixed Pairs (starting 2016). Each WBF NBO is entitled to one national team and unlimited national pairs in each category (in 2008, the 1st edition of the World Mind Sports Games included also World Youth Pairs, Teams and Individual).
Screens are used to help minimize the incidence of cheating in high-level bridge competitions. They divide the bridge diagonally to make it difficult for partners to interact with one another visually, and they’re used at many national and international events including this month’s World Championships.
