General Information

Welcome on behalf of the chairman of Sportvisserij Nederland

Dear Angling Friends,

On behalf of Sportvisserij Nederland (Sport Fishing Netherlands), it gives us great pleasure to invite you to 28th European Championship Coarse Angling for Seniors. This championship will be held along the beautiful Pr. Margrietkanaal, Spannenburg in the Netherlands on 29th and 30th of June 2024.

We are very honoured that C.I.P.S and FIPSed have awarded this European Championship to the Netherlands, and that the province of Friesland has been given this opportunity and has been entrusted with the task of playing host to the best coarse anglers in Europe.

The Netherlands, and in particular the province of Friesland, are characterised by numerous lakes, canals and waterways where both recreational and competitive level sport fishing can be practised intensively. The province of Friesland also boasts an abundance of charming old cities and villages. We would like to invite you to visit these too during your stay, and to enjoy Friesland’s beauty.

We hope this 28th European Championship Coarse Angling for Seniors will be sporting and competitive and will result in great cooperation and friendship among the contestants, volunteers and visitors.
We are sure that besides the sport fishing there will be plenty of time to establish valuable friendships.

Marjan van Kampen
President, Sportvisserij Nederland (Royal Dutch Angling Association)
