Welcome To The IBSF Web Site

IBSF Chairman Jim Leacy

On behalf of the IBSF welcome to the new IBSF Web Site which was designed to go live for the start of the IBSF World Team & 6 Red Championships. These events will be held from Sunday the 29th September to Sunday 6th of October 2013 at the Ivy Rooms in Carlow, Ireland. 

Our old website has served us well over the years bringing you news and results from our various championships around the world and thanks have to go to the various people who looked after it over the years.

It was time however for a change and we believe this newly designed site will serve us well into the future as we aim to bring you more and more content from events and will also integrate with our existing Facebook, Twitter and Live Results. 

Our hope is that IBSF member countries will help us grow the site by submitting their national news directly to the site to hopefully make the site into a hub of cue news from all four corners of the globe. We will be using the address temporarily and hope to back switch over to after the event in Carlow so please keep as your main bookmark. 

As for the upcoming event on behalf of the International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF), I am pleased to welcome and extend a big Céad Mile Failte to all players, referees and supporters to Carlow, Ireland for the 2013 IBSF Team & 6 Red World Championships.  

The IBSF is pleased to acknowledge the great work that has been done by the Republic Of Ireland Billiards & Snooker Association in preparing to host these championships. 
This is a tremendous undertaking by any Association.  There is a huge amount of costs and work involved in the preparation and running of such a programme of events. All of the members of the Irish Association must to be congratulated. 
I hope we will see these event as a permanent fixture on the IBSF Calendar.
Finally I hope everyone will enjoy their stay in Carlow and Ireland and I look forward to another great IBSF World Championships later on this year in Latvia.
