The story of Battle Billiard Royal was born during the first confinement following a simple conversation between Noël and François. After several discussions they decided to create an online billiards tournament platform open 24/7 to players from all over the world. The idea is to give everyone the chance to compete, progress and discuss this sport that we all love. From home or via a commercial room, the concept allows beginners, experienced and professional players to play together.
Noël is currently a mathematics teacher at a college in the south of France. Introduced to billiards by his very young father, it was only at the age of 19 that he started competing in Spain. He was Champion of Seville, Champion of Andalusia as well as Vice-Champion of Spain by team. He has participated in national competitions in France since 2015. Some time after his return to France, he created a billiard club within his college. He volunteers several times a week for his students aged 11 to 15. As a true enthusiast, he was fortunate enough to be able to set up a 9ft American pool table at his home and train hard to achieve his goals. Every year, he also organizes Opens in his region to boost his sport and allow him tohave access to enough competitions to improve.
François discovered billiards at the age of 11 with the billiard table his parents had given him. First tournament at 15 and he has never stopped since. A true enthusiast of this magnificent sport, he participated for many years in French national competitions in the Masters category and was triple French team champion and finished 9th at the European team championships. He had to stop competing in 2015 for professional reasons but always continued to train at home on his 9ft American pool table.
