Hi, my name is Kaylash Persad. I won three Gold medals, two Silver and one Bronze medal on the National Youth Poolbiljart championships. I am now 3 years part of the national team and one of the youngest (13 years) pool players in the national selection. I was selected for this team when I was 10 years. In the national competition I am playing in the 2nd division with the team Broeja-Ziebers.
Last summer I represented the Netherlands again on the European Youth Poolbiljart Championship in Luxemburg. The top 4 players of about 26 different European countries competed in this event. My best performance was reaching the quarter-finals with 9-ball (just as the year before).
