Hi, just to add info about the B teams - B-teams will be allowed to compete in both championships, but only A-teams will have official ranking. Additional individual players will be allowed too and there will be UN teams formed as usually.

Hi,

In the post above:
Transport
There are 3 airports you can choose for your flights. The closest is in the Krk Island, Rijeka is about 30 minutes and the biggest one is in Zagreb (1,5hour by car)
Shuttle busses will be available for us during the whole event.

On the official website:
Will there be any transfer organized?
On the arrival and departure days transfer will be provided from/to Zagreb airport, Ljubljana airport (in Slovenia) and Trieste airport (in Italiy).

Can the WPC organisers please confirm which airports free transfers will be provided to/from?
As we (and others) are in the process of booking flights, a quick and accurate response to this would be really appreciated

Thanks

Ciao Stefano, according to the last info I have, the competitors from B teams will not be included in the official ranking. I have already asked the organizers to confirm it as well. Regards, Hana.

Hi Alan,
I have asked the organizer to respond but unfortunately no action so far. So I will take all the responsibility and respond on behalf of them - Krk, Rijeka, Zagreb, Ljubljana and Trieste will be the airports with organized transfers. Hope it helps. Thanks. Hana

Hello
Apologies for not responding immediately.
This is Valter Kvalić's answer to Alan's question:

Hi,
the most convenient airport for all should be Zagreb. (Rijeka is even better, but there are not many arrivals to this airport).
If you arrive in Trieste or Ljubljana, your transfer to Uvala Scott might not be so prompt, and transfer time is about one hour longer than from Zagreb.
Regards

When it comes to B teams Hana's info is correct, members of B teams will also be on the unofficial individual list.

One more thing, just to make it clear: Krk and Rijeka are one and the same airport (i.e. Rijeka airport is located on the island of Krk), and that is the best option because it's only a couple of kilometers from Uvala Scott.
So: Rijeka and Zagreb are preferable, Ljubljana and Trieste are other possible airports for transfer to and from Kraljevica.
