Tournament on Russian billiards

Our students held a! The organizer of the tournament was Nazar Dmitrovsky – third year student of the joint program! We are grateful for Nazar’s initiative!

The winner of the tournament was Theodor Plesha – a student of the second year of the joint program!

The game of billiards probably originated in France in the XV century. For the first time billiards in written was mentioned in connection with the French King Louis XI, who in 1470 ordered a billiard table for himself. The word “billiards” comes from the French word “bille”, which means “ball”.

First the game was held outdoors, but then to play in any weather the game was moved to a room – and people began to play on the table. Since then traditional green cloth of billiard table has stayed as a reminder of green grass on which the game had taken place before.
