Cork Worlds Update

Dear All,
I would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming interest in Cork Worlds 2009! The Championships are set to be one of the most international yet, and the Cork Worlds 2009 team looks forward to welcoming everyone to Cork.

I would like to take this opportunity to announce that we will be moving 34 teams from the waiting list tomorrow night (Irish time) to being registered so as to reach our team cap of 300 teams, following the completion of country-quota requirements as set down by Worlds Council. These places will be allocated as normal to the institutions concerned, with an institutional cap of three.

I am also delighted to announce that we will be increasing the team cap for Cork Worlds 2009 from 300 teams to 308. All team places over the 300 mark though will be allocated on a one team per institution basis in light of the overwhelming demand for places at Cork Worlds 2009 and our wish to allow as many institutions as possible to take part in the Championships. In addition all team places that may be allocated in the future, on the basis of teams pulling out for example, will be on a one per institution basis.

In addition applications for n-1 waivers are still be taken and applications will be accepted until August 20th by emailing Furthermore if you would like to apply to be an independent/additional adjudicator at Cork Worlds 2009, again applications must be emailed to

If anyone has any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will give you every assistance possible.

Best wishes,

Mark Collins BCL (International) 4
