Billiard Sport Academy Jasmin Ouschan
The Billiard Sport Academy has been a part of the Sportpark Klagenfurt family since December of 2011 and provides the best training opportunities for Jasmin Ouschan (European Champion and World Champion, number one of the WPBA Pro Tour and number one of the Women’s World Ranking List in Billiard) in order for her to prepare for international competitions. The Billiard Sport Academy is located on Siebenhügelstraße 107A – 1st floor.
The Billiard Sport Academy is equipped with different types of billiard tables as well as a fitness area. The Academy serves as a training base for first class billiard in Austria, as well as for the Austrian youth and adult squad. Ouschan’s intention is to inspire people for “her“ sport by using the facility and, therefore, it is also available for Charity and Sport events. “We are planning to use the Academy for scientific purposes by inviting top players to analyze their moves in order to determine similarities and differences in the individual players’ behavior. This will also help us identify areas that can be developed, which is very similar to other sports. This has been a weak point in Austria,” says Jasmin Ouschan.
Take a virtual tour to enter the world of the Billiard Sport Academy Jasmin Ouschan. Visitors that take stadium tours can also briefly check out Jasmin Ouschan’s space, and might be able to peak over her shoulder during one of her training sessions.Read more
