Selector’s Report #116 – Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy Trial

A on-line trial (using the RealBridge platform) will be held over the weekend of 23rd – 24th January 2021, with a view to selecting the Wales team for the Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy. The format to be adopted is likely to be a complete Round Robin of 14 board matches scored by cross-IMPs. The winner of this trial, will be guaranteed selection for the Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy, with two further pairs then being chosen by the selectors.

Although entries for the trial closed on 15th January, the selectors may consider late entries, in order to avoid a half table, with pairs sitting out.

The Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy will be held on-line on 16th – 18th April 2021 using the RealBridge platform.

It should be noted that the Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy will be played on the same weekend as the Lady Milne, so players will be unable to play in both events. Eligible players may need to chose between representing Wales in the Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy or in the Lady Milne, with that decision being made following the Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy trial. This is not an ideal situation but it was a decision that was made by BGB and was beyond the direct control of the WBU.

Once the Senior Camrose / Teltscher Trophy results are known, the Selectors will meet and decide whether holding a trial for the Lady Milne is warranted.
