VIII. Smoking Ban
Smoking shall not be allowed in the playing hall for the
duration of the event. This applies to everyone present: players, officials,
media representatives and spectators.
The tournament organizers will provide the players and
officials with a separate area outside the playing hall where smoking will be
permitted. This area will be easily accessible from the playing hall. If local
ordinances totally prohibit smoking within the premises, the players and
officials should be provided with easy access outdoors.
