These, generally regarded as the greatest Team MC event in the world, have been held every two years since 1870 with breaks only in 1914-18 and 1940-44, though only since 1910 have they been fully open. England have dominated, with 42 victories out of the 64 championships played to date (2004), but several African and South American countries are showing increasing promise - most notably Egypt, Sudan and Bolivia. Since 1956, the Team championships have also contained a Pairs event, although this event has remained the "poor relation" by comparison with the four-man Team event.
