 • Scorers

The organizers need to know in advance if and how many teams need scorers at the tables. Accordingly, NBOs are requested to indicate whether they need scorers or not at the time of delegation names' submission.

During the Championships it will be impossible to arrange for scorers. The cost of the scorerís service is €30 per match and scorers have to be booked for all matches.
