The 16 countries where I’ve played pool

The 16 countries where I’ve played pool

I was just traveling online, thinking about what to do and where I want to go. The answer is always the same: I want to see as much of the world as possible. This mind-traveling at home by staring at my laptop screen made me think about all the places where I’ve played pool the past 17 years. I’ve made a list and it apparently comes down to a total of 16 countries.

When you live in a small country such as the Netherlands, it’s fairly easy to cross off countries like Germany, France, Belgium, and Luxembourg where you can easily go to, to play tournaments. I can cross the border with Belgium within just 70 minutes by car and it takes about 130 minutes to end up in Germany. However, there are a few countries on my list that took me a little longer than that to get there. These are the countries where I’ve played pool:

About Pepijn de Wit

I’m an adventurous 30-year-old from the Netherlands. I started playing pool as a nine-year-old standing on an empty Coca-Cola crate to be able to reach the cue ball and grew out to a hobbyist with 15 national titles on his name. Now, I consider myself a one pocket enthusiast and push for one pocket to electrify the Netherlands and Europe. I therefore started the One Pocket Series, a national tour to promote the game. Next to that, I've studied cultural anthropology, I currently work at a casino, and truly love the outdoors. My ambitions are big, my dreams even bigger.
