Marble game -- is it only a game for kids or regular sport branch? Most
people remember this game from their young years. But today there are
many prestigious marble tournaments around the world every year. In this
article I will take a look at some facts about marble tournaments and
show you how can you represent your country in these very popular events.
Please keep in mind that even thought I will speak about international
tournaments, you are welcome to participate!

Marble tournaments are most popular in Europe (Germany, Netherlands,
Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Slovak Republic) and America (United
States, Canada, Brazil). If you look around you will find various rules
of marble game. In the Europe most countries prefer hole game (players
shoot marbles to the hole), in America and United Kingdom the game called
Ringer is more popular (the object of the game is to shoot small marbles
in the ring out of the ring by shooter, a bigger marble). Some countries
play both, hole game and Ringer (e. g. Deutsches Murmelrat - the German
marble federation - has four different games).

Many marble tournaments are held in the Czech Republic. In 2002, 2003 and
2004 the Czech Marble Federation organised international tournament
called Czech Open.

One year later, in 23 - 24 July 2005, the first World Marbles
Championship in individual hole game took place in Prague, the capital of
the Czech Republic. It was played on Strelecky Ostrov, the island in the
Prague center. After 2 days of serious matches was known the world
champion -- Svatoslav Sterba from the Czech Republic.

The second World Marbles Championship will take place in Prague too, in
22 - 23 July 2006. In fact, the participants can come sooner and enjoy
the beauties of Prague and its neighbourhood. The sportground at
Strelecky Ostrov is available 24/7 for training and on Friday evening, 21
July, there will official training take place.
On Saturday, 22 July, there will be opening ceremony and the championship
will start by matches in groups. On Sunday it will continue by double
elimination system. This day will be most important for all players
because one of them will become of the world champion!

But World Marbles Championship is not only strong competition. There is
enough time to discover some of hundreds sightseeings, go shopping or go
to the pub with players from another countries. Because the organizers
signed up a contract with quality accommodation facility, marble players
can stay as long as they want and pay only 8 - 16 EUR per night.

As I said, even thought you are not professional marble player, you are
welcome to come to Prague and participate! There are many countries where
are marbles played by children but nobody organize the tournaments. Now
you have tho opportunity to change it - come to represent your country
and play with participants from another countries. For more information
