International Player Database
The World Bridge Federation (WBF) has taken on the task of compiling an International player database of all registered players of the WBF member National Bridge Organizations (NBOs). The International player database will be used to register players at WBF events starting in Sanya, China at the 2014 World Bridge Series and to identify players at tournaments and clubs around the world. The players’ names and identifications will also be incorporated into wireless scoring machines, such as Bridgemate, to recognize players wherever they play. A player’s NBO Identification as well as any WBF player identification will be recorded.
In order to complete the project player data is sought from all NBOs. Once the initial data is recorded a timetable will be set for periodically updating the data.
The first implementation will only contain the player’s NBO code and name.
At the end of this year procedures will be made available for the NBOs to: (a) upload/update their local data into the International database and (b) download/update the Bridgemate files by NBOs’ recognized Tournament Directors.
