Breton partner of Billiards 2024 for first World Team Trophy
The World Team Trophy (WTT), which takes place on March 11th & 12th 2019 at the Orangerie de Roissy-en-France, will prefigure what the sports formula should be at the Olympic Games. On the occasion of this first World Trophy we have installed a 3m10 AERO for the Carom billiards matchs.
In Roissy, 4 men’s and 4 women’s teams will be competing: France, Europe, Asia and "Rest of the World" (Africa, America and Oceania). Each team is composed of three players representing the carambola (3 bands), the American pool and the snooker. In addition to the French, the selected players come from 18 different countries and five continents, thus meeting the IOC’s requirements of diversity.
The formula is designed so that the games last about an hour with half an hour of beating between game turns. The matches will be broadcast live on the Olympic channel!

Billards Bréton is an official partner of the "Billard 2024" project committee
The World Confederation of Billiards Sports (WCBS) and the Fédération Française de Billard (FFB) presented on 14 November 2018 the billiards candidacy to include it among the additional sports at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
Billards Bréton reinforces its commitment to the French Billiards Federation and supports the "Billard 2024" Project Committee by becoming an official partner. The objective of this committee is to create unity in the world of billiards sport to be able to lead the best possible campaign to obtain Olympic recognition. The press conference presenting the candidacy took place on Friday, November 30th at the Eiffel Tower in the presence of the various federations, players and members of the industry participating in the project.
Billiards is a sport rooted in history and it is practiced throughout the world in many disciplines, the three main ones being Carom (French billiards), American pool and snooker. There are 261 national federations in 135 countries.
At the crossroads of sport, leisure and history, Billiards has all the qualities to participate in the Olympic adventure! It requires concentration, lucidity and precision and is practiced at all ages. Do you know an intergenerational, friendly, educational and beneficial sport for your health? Billiards is an excellent example of this! Do you know a sport where you can anticipate, design, attack and defend? This sport is still billiards!
Events will be held during the selection process to present all aspects of billiards to the general public.
In parallel, an online petition and a campaign on social networks have been launched to support the candidacy: #billiards2024 is the hashtag that will unite all billiard players around the world. A major championship will be held in March in Ile de France to present to the public the game modes used for billiards at the Olympic Games!

In partnership with interior designer Olivier Chabaud, Bréton realizes a unique prototype
At the heart of a park along the Seine river stands a 19th century house, fully refurbished by interior designer Olivier Chabaud. To equip the billiard room, Billard Bréton was asked to realize a unique prototype.
The billiard table summarizes the whole project philosophy: clean lines, importance of lighting effect and highest care for materials selection.
This convertible carom to American pool table of 2m60 long breaks the classic billiards lines.
The prototype "V House" is at crossroads between tradition and modernity, reflecting the expertise of Billards Bréton.
