HOOGEVEEN - Three very strong French teams, the Dutch players Henry Tilleman and Jean Paul de Bruijn and Belgian Patrick Niessen, playing for the team of Etikon, the Spaniards of Centelles and the German DTC Bochum 1926 are starting on Friday the battle for the European championship classic games.

The tournament, which is organized by De Hoogeveense Biljartclub, will be played in Biljartcentrum L'Acquit in Hoogeveen. The six teams play on Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 March. The kick-off is Friday at 16.00.

Wolfgang Rittmann, president of the CEB (European federation) says: ,,The classical disciplines are the origin and basis of our sport. Free game was the first discipline. With balk-line and one cushion billiards was developping more and more. These disciplines demanded more skills of the player. In all those years the classical disciplines have become a delicacy for anyone interested in billiards.''
