Welcome at the official EYC 2021 website. In September 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.

As organizing committee, we also have our dreams! To organize an event which will be remembered for a long time. By participants and coaches as well as by the fans. The EYC-family is very big. We started in 1972 and ever since we created a lot of great memories, started beautiful friendships and saw a lot of great bowling. Everybody who was involved in the EYC in the past 40+ years will look forward to a new edition and we also strive to introduce this great event to new bowling fans, in the Netherlands but also in Europe and the world! Having so many online opportunities, we want to give all fans in the world the opportunity to enjoy the EYC as much as we do.

At this website you will find all information about the events, the participants and our local partners. Get connected with the EYC family on facebook and instagram! During the event this website will be updated with news, results, helpful links and more. So add this website to your favourites and we hope to stay in touch.
