The English Partnership for Snooker and Billiards (EPSB) is an umbrella organisation that aligns the interests of its affiliated bodies and creates projects to inspire and drive awareness of snooker and billiards to new participants in England.
Its objectives are to increase participation, improve facilities and promote cue sports with an inclusive approach providing an opportunity for all.
Since June 2019 the EPSB has also been responsible for the governance of amateur snooker, including national competitions in England, since a resolution was passed by the previous governing body, the English Association of Snooker and Billiards, in favour of the transfer of its operations to the EPSB.
The EPSB brings together the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association Limited (WPBSA), World Billiards Limited (WBL), World Women’s Snooker Limited (WWS) and World Disability Billiards and Snooker Limited (WDBS).
The partnership aims to create a clear pathway from beginner to elite professional and develop a structured coaching environment that will inspire all regardless of gender, ability or ethnicity to fulfil their potential in our sport.
