Welcome to the 2023 European Championship!
For the 5th time, the whole European Billiards Community will meet for the largest international carom competition, organized by the CEB. After the great success of the first 4 editions, we are once again presenting a prestigious event where men and women, elite, individual and teams, in all disciplines meet together to celebrate European billiards.
This edition will take place over 9 days in the beautiful city of Antalya and will welcome more than 450 athletes from 18 countries and 70 referees from 9 countries to award 15 European titles.
I am very happy with the novelties of this year: Ladies 3-Cushion National Teams, Ladies 5-Pins Individual, Artistic National Teams, and 3-Cushion U25.
Without the support of the City of Antalya, the Turkish Billiards Federation (TBF), and all the sponsors, it would not have been possible to carry out this event. Therefore, I would like to sincerely thank them.
We also stand in solidarity with the people of Turkey amidst the recent earthquakes that have affected millions of people. Despite all the challenges, our on-ground teams in Turkey have shown immense strength in organising these championships. We sincerely thank every one of them and hope that these championships will bring a positive impact on the region.
With the Maritim Pine Beach Belek Hotel, we have a perfect environment for our competitions.
All matches will be broadcasted worldwide by our partner Kozoom. The team from Touch Magazine will provide media support with press releases and pictures daily.
We have done everything possible to ensure that the athletes, sponsors, and spectators experience an exceptional event. This would not have been possible without the support of the Turkish Billiards Federation and the CEB Board Members and Staff.
I wish success to all the participants and hope that you enjoy the Championship!
Let the show begin!
President Confédération Européenne de Billard (CEB)
