Message from the ETBF President



Distinguished guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, dear bowling friends,

On behalf of my Presidium, I would like to welcome you all to Brussels, Belgium for the 18th edition of the European Women Championships.

In 2016 The Belgian Tenpin Bowling Federation hosted the European Men Championships. This time again they want to show that they are good organizers and excellent hosts. 133 lady participants representing 26 member federations of ETBF will show what a wonderful sport bowling is.

I want to thank the Belgian Tenpin Bowling Federation under the leadership of their president Mr. Marc Beaufays, for taking these very important championships.
I also thank all volunteers for their efforts, time and energy they have and will spent to make the stay of all of us worthwhile.
The ETBF presidium is convinced that the EWC 2018 will be one to remember and I am sure that the athletes and their guests will be of the same opinion when they travel home.

I also want to thank our member federations for sending their best athletes and coaches. It is now your task ladies to show the importance of our sport: a fair, non judgemental and honest sport without drugs. Finally to the families and guests that have travelled to Brussels to support the players, I hope that you will enjoy a wonderful competition with excellent scores.

I hope that you will bowl the tournament of your life.


With regards

Addie Ophelders
President
