EUSA SYMPOSIUM 1st European Universities Bridge Championship will take place in Opatija (Croatia) from October 4-10, 2009 and it will be organised by the Polytechnic of Karlovac, Croatia. The Polytechnic of Karlovac is according to the number of students (2100) the smallest member of NUSA. Regardless of that fact they have taken part in the European Championship four times. It happened at the first Championship in Serbia (2001), Slovenia (2003), France (2004), and Croatia (2007). The permanent presence at sport activities has been awarded by the trust of EUSA and NUSA for the organization of the 1st European Universities Bridge Championship which will take place in the city with bridge tradition, also called the Queen of Croatian Tourism, the Old Lady or the Adriatic Pearl. Bridge is the game of knowledge and intelligence, not luck, which demands and develops tolerance and team work because the success of game depends exclusively on understanding and cooperation between partners. It developed at the end of the 19th century from the english game whist. It was played at the stylish bourgeois drawing rooms but not at colleges. It began to spread over America and Europe. After World War the second special academies for bridge were being organized, first in France and then in Sweden, Israel, China, Poland and elsewhere...... In Croatia it is being played at many faculties and it has become the olympic sport. Come and become the part of the European Universities Bridge History!
