These rules were approved by WADA on 27th January 2009 and are in force as Players in the Open, Women’s and Youth (Junior and Youngsters) Teams in World Bridge Teams Championships will be liable for Anti-Doping Tests.of that date.

Any players requiring exemption certificates should ensure that they complete the TUE form and return it to the address given on the document as soon as possible and no later than 21 days before the commencement of the competition in which they are participating.
