The Turkish parfum

2021 EBSA European Snooker Championships are the first ones for Adryaman’s Yasemin Bagian and Ancara’s Cemile Asci but the snooker and sunny Albufeira appeal conquered the two referees who came from Turkey.

«It has been very friendly. All the staff, at the even or hotel, even the people are nice to us, weather is great and you have a refined cuisine too. I’ve been in some other snooker world events but we just hope this European Championships to be the first of many still to come, because we love snooker», told us Yasemein, a former volleyball player «for 16 years» and now a coach in this other sport.

«This is a giant event. We knew some good carambol players in Turkey and had refereed some matches of Semih Sayginer. We intend to learn and help the players as much as we can» adds computer expert and IT manager Cemile Asci with her eyes still shining with all the excitement and non-stop rhythm of matches at Albufeira’s Vidamar Resort Hotel.
