The EPSB is delighted to announce the team of players that will represent the organisation for the upcoming 2021 EBSA European Snooker Championships that are taking place between the 2nd-17th October at the Vidamar Hotel Resort in the Algarve, Portugal.
The EBSA European Championships are steeped in history and is one of the most prestigious international amateur events on the snooker calendar. First held in 1988, the Open Championship has been won by several well-known professional players such as Mark Allen and Luca Brecel. England holds the record for the most number of wins in that particular event with eight.
Other categories have been added down the years, with the Under-21 and Open Championships both providing qualification paths to the professional circuit.
