26th European Youth Teams - 8 to 15 July 2017
Congratulations to Poland who retained their U16 title. The standard was higher than two years ago in Tromso. Top six qualified for the World Champs next year in Suzhou, China. Sweden look ominous for U26 title - over a match clear with only us English of the current top teams in ...

English breakfast available at breakfast. There's a couple of coffee bars that also stock it. They don't have proper sized mugs though.

Brackets, yes or no ?
This poll needs a 'Flannery' option.
New Monaco Pair
Some have argued that but for a scoring mishap that Japan would have made it last time.
EBL/WBF: hands diagrams and Butler ranking
Butler-booster and butler-bashing trips off the tongue more easily than corresponding cross-imp variants.
Playing conditions in Montecatini
I think they need the transnationals to make these things pay, and they don't get the average teams in if it doesn't have some interest as a venue. In reality, the bridge should come first with supporting infrastructure second and if there's any other bonus for everyone ...
