The accreditation is on and open and player’s registration is done all day long. The team leader meeting will be held at 19:30 with the opening ceremony scheduled for 21:00 local time.
After straight pool, 10-ball, 8-ball, 9-ball and team competition will be played. The coveted trophies and medals will be handed out all week long until March 28th when the final match of the 9-ball competition will finish the European Championships.

But not the pool action in Albufeira at all. Starting March 30th, the Dynamic Billard Portuguese Open Euro-Tour and the Dynamic Billard Portuguese Women Open will kick off.
