Dear bowling friends,


The year 2022 is coming to an end.


It is a good custom if we wish each other a wonderful Christmas time and a good start in the New Year 2023.  It is my privilege to wish you on behalf my presidium all the above.


I take this opportunity also to thank Dr. Natasa Pirc Musar for all her help, advise and friendship during her time as General Secretary of EBF and Chairwoman of the Gender Equality Committee.

She now must fulfil the big task being the President of the Republic of Slovenia. We all wish her the best.


I also wish that the leadership of IBF (including myself) finds a way out of the

deadlock we seem to have landed.


As of the 1st of January 2023, Martina Jakobi from Germany will be the new General Secretary of EBF. We also wish her the very best.


Me and my Presidium look forward to a fruitful 2023 and with the help of all our member federations and individual members we will be able to improve our BOWLING SPORT.


On behalf of the EBF Presidium,

Addie Ophelders
