The Royal Dutch Billiards Federation (Dutch: Koninklijke Nederlandse Biljart Bond, KNBB)[1] was founded in 1911[2] to coordinate, within the Netherlands, billiards, pool and snooker. The union is affiliated with the Union Mondiale de Billard , Confédération Européenne de Billard and NOC * NSF . The Head Office is located in the Blokhoeve district of Nieuwegein.[citation needed]

In 2018, the KNBB introduced a mathematics based pool game called "smart pool",[3] which was rolled out to play by schoolchildren across Europe.[4]
