Welcome to the CEB Best Practices Portal!

The CEB’s Best Practices Portal is designed to help find reliable and practical information on implemented practices recognized as ‘best' 
or ‘promising' for developing Billiards. Practices can be submitted by National Federations for evaluation through the mentioned email address.

Every practice that is evaluated as ‘best' or ‘promising’ will be published on this page and will be promoted through our social media channels. 
Further, the project may be brought to the attention of other National Federations for transfer of knowledge and broader implementation.

CEB has made it a priority to identify, disseminate, and transfer the best and promising practices to develop Billiards in Europe.
CEB warmly thanks all the National Federations that are contributing to this project.
