Welcome at the official EYC 2021 website. In March 2021 the European Youth Bowling Championships will be held in the city of Tilburg. This means the event returns to The Netherlands for the first time since 2000. This will be the 33rd edition organized by the European Tenpin Bowling Federation (ETBF). Both ETBF and local organizers  NBF (the Dutch Bowling Federation) are looking forward to welcoming participants, coaches and fans to Dolfijn – The Plays To Be – for championships where the best youth bowlers Europe has to offer will compete for the gold and will chase their dreams!

#ChaseYourDreams, that’s our main goal for this year’s event, because we think that’s what it’s all about in youth sports. Dreams in all sorts and sizes. Representing your country for the very first time, winning a medal for the first time or taking home the gold! Whatever the dream is, it can come true at the EYC 2021.
