Welcome to EBSA.TV

Europe is one of the largest snooker playing regions in the world, with more than 49 active member countries in the EBSA and the numbers are growing all the time.

The EBSA hosts two major tournaments annually : The European Snooker Championships with events for U18, U21, 6 Reds and Men/Mixed Championships usually held in March of each year and, the European Single Women & Seniors +  Teams (Women, Men & Seniors) Championships usually held in June of each year, displaying the best up and coming talent from across the continent.

In addition, EBSA with the support of its Coaching Committee organises during each of the two annual tournaments seminars for new Snooker coaches. Candidates must be nominated by their National Associations to attend the seminars.
