Dear ladies and gentlemen,
Dear friends of the sport of billiards,

Welcome to the 36th World Championship Three Cushion Teams in Viersen.

I am delighted that this event is now being held for the 33rd time in a row in the Festhalle in Viersen.

Over the four days of the tournament, a total of 16 two-player teams from all over the world will compete for the prestigious World Championship title in three cushion billiards, a type of carom billiards. Turkey will be competing again as defending champions, as will last year‘s runner-up Sweden.

Spectators can look forward to exciting competitions at the „Wimbledon of billiards“. These World Championships are the most important tournament of the year in the international calendar for top athletes.

I would like to thank the Deutsche Billard-Union for their great commitment to the organisation of this sporting event. In addition to the sponsors and partners, my special thanks go to the numerous volunteers who make a significant contribution to the organisation of such an event through their active support and personal commitment.

I wish all athletes and spectators exciting and successful competitions and a smooth organisation of the event.

State Secretary for Sport and Volunteering

The Festhalle Viersen is the hub of social and cultural life in our town. Its sound and lighting systems not only capture brilliant performances in music, theatre or dance, but have for decades also been used to showcase sporting events.

The Festhalle is once again set to be the stage for title-winning performances and the passion for a mesmerizing sport: three-cushion billiards, where national teams from all over the world will compete in March 2024.

National and international experts will once again line up their cues to set off caroms that will thrill countless longstanding fans and a growing number of new enthusiasts. The audience will witness top-level tactics, techniques and match strategies during the Billiards World Championships – followed live at the Festhalle and streamed around the world.

It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the 36th World Three-Cushion Billiards Championship, which will be hosted in Viersen for the 33rd time and will bring us the breathtaking performances of the billiards elite from March 21th to 24th.

Viersen welcomes the national teams with open arms. We value each other and the professional and informal atmosphere of the venue. I would like to thank the German Billiards Union for their cooperation and loyalty to Viersen, as well as the sponsors and the many helping hands for their support, without which this tournament would not be such a success.

Here’s to four eventful, fair and exciting match days!

Best regards,

Sabine Anemüller
