Welcome to the 26th European Senior Bowlers Championships 2017 in Dublin, Ireland

Dear bowling friends,

As president of ESBC I am very pleased to write some words for the bid book of the 26th European Senior Bowlers Championships in Dublin.

It will be the second time we visit Ireland. Ireland was the fourth country to host het European championships in 1995 then with 419 players participating. Now the challenge is much bigger.

The organizing committee has to provide enough bowling lanes as well as good hotels or other accommodations. That is a huge task in Dublin.

I want to thank the organizing committee for their hard work and many hours they spend to organize these championships. The ESBC presidium has visited Dublin in March 2016 to inspect all bowling centres and hotels and to verify that they will be according to the standards for the championships. There still is work to do, but before the championships everything will be according to ESBC standards.

The ESBC presidium is sure the organizing committee will do its utmost to fulfil your championships to an excellent standard.

We hope you will visit the 26th European Senior Bowlers Championships in Dublin, Ireland 2017 and we will all meet again in the bowling centres, with beautiful weather, with magnificent food, Irish beers and their hospitality in a lovely atmosphere!!

Best regards,

Paul Douw
