Top Carrom players of the world happy in Europe

Berlin, 27th September 2011

The Indian Naional Carrom Team concluded it European Tour today, which is being appreciated as a
great event for further promotion of the game of Carrom in Europe. The tour started on 16th September 2011 from Berlin, Germany.

With current World Champion Yogesh pardeshi, current Asian Champion Prakash Gaikwad the Indian team gave excellent performances in Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and Switzerland and won the hearts of many local players.
The team was invited by the European Carrom Confederation to visit several European countries. The visa for third Indian player K. Srinivas was refused by the German Embassy in New Delhi. Although the German Carrom Federation (Deutscher Carrom Verband e.V.) and the Carrom Sports Association Berlin (Carrom Sport Verein Berlin e.V.) had officially invited the Indian National Team. Also the Swiss Carrom Association, Carrom Federation of poland, Carrom Association of Czech Republic and UK Carrom Federation had extended similar official invitations stating that they will be responssible for boarding, lodging and local transport of the Indian team. Mr. S.K. Sharma General Secretary of the All India Carrom Federation, who is also Secretary General of the International Carrom Federation was also resfused visa by the German Embassy in New Delhi, but finally joined the Indian team in Zurich on Swiss visa.
On 26th September, Mr. Sharma sent me the following mail:

"Yesterday, two Indian players played Test Match with Swiss Team.  The format was different. Two Indian players played Test Match against four Swiss players each and each.  All the eight matches were played on the basis of Laws of Carrom except that each game was restricted to 8 boards.
Both Yogesh and Prakash won four matches each i.e. the score was 8-0.
Besides, on 24th September 2011, Indian players gave exposure to Swiss players by playing one game matches against about 12 players.
Hospitality provided by Swiss Carrom Association was excellent and we are happy, satisfied and appreciate their support. They also arranged three hours sight seeing tour to Rhein falls and two hours guided city tour of Zurich. We are still in Zurich and going to Berne to meet the Counsellor of the Embassy.  We are leaving for Delhi at 4 pm on 27.9.11 i.e. tomorrow."
Earlier on 16th September the Indian team had visited Berlin on the invitation of the German Carrom Federation and Carrom Sports Association Berlin and played friendly and official test matches between 17th and 18th September. In the official test matches on 18th September which were conducted in two rounds of best of three each, the German players gave initially good resistance, before the Indians could dominate fully.
In Round one Germany's Peter Boecker beat India's Prakash Gaikwad by 25:20, but lost in the second and third games clearly. Praksh Gaikwad won with 25:02 and in second and  25:01 in the third game of the first round. Peter was beaten clearly in the second round by Yogesh Pardeshi with the score 25:01 and 25:03.
Germany's young Tobias Krueger scored 16 points in the first game of the first round gainst Yogesh Pardeshi, before Yogesh could fully dominate by winning both sets 25:16 and 25:05.
Yogesh scored two White Slams, one against Tobias and the other one against Peter. Earlier on 17th September the Indian players had scored few slams gainst the players of Berlin.

The prizes were given by the ECC president Arif Naqvi and G.C.F. President Joerg Kijanski and Head of the Cultural Centre "Stadtteil Lichtenberg" Mrs. Sommerlatte.

On 19th September the Indian National Team, which was accompanied by the ECC President Arif Naqvi, was received in Warsaw. Many players from different parts of Poland had come to see and play with Indians. Many friendly matches were held with large number of Polsih players, who included many young enthusiastic boys and girls. The Indian players were extremely delighted on the shower of friendship and excellent hospitality. They were also surprised to see the rising standard of the game in Polansd. At the closing evening on 20th September President of Polish Carrom Federation Jakub Nowakowski and Vice President of ECC Paulina Nowakowska appreciated the excellent performances of the Indian players and presented gifts.

From Warsaw the Indian players along with ECC President went to Prague and played friendly games with Czech players. Like Warsaw the audience in Prague also belonged mostly to enthusiastic young boys and girls and the venue was full. On the request of the hosts India's Yogesh Pardeshi and Prakash Gaikwad gave a demonstration by playing a full match of 25 points against each other. It was narrowly decided with 25:23 for Yogesh Pardeshi. The match was conducted by Horst Simunski as umpire. There was tremendous enthusiasm among the audience to see their performances.
