Do you know any sport that fits this description ?
– Born in the 15th century
– Universal: practiced all over the world,
– Open to all: young or old, women or men, handicapped or not, rich or poor,…
– Combining body and mind,
– Perfect model for fair play and respect: the sportsmen even anticipate the decisions of the referee !
Yes, you have guessed: Billiards has all these characteristics.
That’s why we are candidate as additional sport for the 2024 Olympic Games !
That’s why we must fight all together for that !
That’s why I want to thank DBC Bochum and DBU: with Carom, Pool and Snooker, this “Big event 2018” is the perfect example for the promotion program that we will launch in June 2018, with Paris 2024 as a target.
