Information about our billiards website
BC De Deken is a carom billiards club. Most popular games played in our club are 3-cushion billiards and straight rail. From time to time 1-cushion and balkline are played as well. All 7 tables in the billiard room are pocketless. There are 3 match tables (2,85 m) and 4 small tables (2,10 m).
The goal of our website is to share information about our billiard club, our club teams and cue sports in general with a focus on carom billiards. You'll find lots of billiard links, footage of matches and billiard lessons, information about the rich history of billiards and 3-cushion systems. Filip Steurs also shares information about his billiards collection (books, magazines, championship brochures, posters and match rosters).
