The English Amateur Billiards Championship (EABC), organised by the English Amateur Billiards Association (EABA), is a British tournament in the game of English billiards, and one of the world's oldest sporting championships, dating back to 1888. The first winner was Mr H A O Lonsdale, of Manchester, who, strangely enough, won the title again in 1910, 22 ears after his first victorv. One of the peculiarities of the rules in those days was that two championships were played each year, one in spring and
another in the autumn when Mr Lonsdale lost the title the same year in which he had won it to a very fine player in Mr A P Gaskell. Gaskell went on to win it on the next four occasions and then again in April 1891.
Considered by many to be the most prestigious amateur national championship in the game (which is also popular in Australia, India and several other former British colonies), "The English" is widely entered and supported throughout England, and is open to non-English players.
