Monday, 2 July 2012: Yves Aubry, EBL President, declared the 11th European Youth Pairs Championship open last night in front of the field of 104 players who compete in the first EBL Youth Mixed Pairs. The Mixed Pairs is to be held over today and tomorrow on a Barometer format of all-play-all, two boards against each other pair. The Juniors, Girls and Youngsters Pairs start on Wednesday.

This are some of the things Mr Aubry said in his inaugural speech: «It is a great pleasure to recognize the degree of participation to this championship with players coming from 26 countries. A new Mixed category has been added in this championship. 51 pairs are registered and you will compete together during two days in an Endless Howell Barometer movement. Then you will compete in the
three usual categories (Junior, Youngsters and Girls) with a two days qualification session and one day in the final session also in a
Barometer movement.
The last day, all players who fail to qualify to the final will be able to take part in a new Pairs competition with no age, sex or nationality restriction for the President’s Cup.
The European Bridge League is very honoured that His Royal Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark accepted to be the patron of this event.
