A short introduction.
I was born on 3rd December 1969 and spent my childhood in Lommel. Now I am married to Iris Blondeel and together we have two beautiful children, Lindsey and Romy.
Because my father was an active billiard player, I was twelve when i first had a cue in my hands. One year later, at the age of 13, I started taking lessons.
From that moment on my career took off. Because of many regional and later national victories, I swiftly started to climb the rankings.
When I was eighteen years old I promoted to be the Honour Division for the discipline called straight billiards. In the four following years I became Honour Division player in all 6 disciplines of billiard, namely; straight billiards, balkline 47/2, balkline 47/1, balkline 71/2, one cushion and three-cushion billiards.
In 1993 I won the Belgian Cup three-cushion billiards. Ever since this is the discipline I practice the most.
In December 2005 I opend my biljartshop “Verhoeven Eddy Leppens”, and made my dream a reality: I was able to turn my favourite pastime into my professionl.
