Frédéric Caudron Renews Sponsorship Contract with Aramith and Simonis

The Belgian 3-cushion Champion who just returned to the UMB after 4 successful years in Korea with the PBA has just renewed his partnership with the World’s leading billiard cloth and ball brands.

Born in Mons in 1968, Frédéric Caudron started playing carom at the age of 8 years-old. He was going to his father’s club who was himself a great player. Having the club just seconds away from his parents’ home, Frédéric quickly became hooked to carom, and especially the Classic games. After being trained by the other club members, his father saw in Frédéric his potential for becoming a professional player.

From the age of 14 years-old, Frédéric Caudron took weekly lessons with the internationally renowned and World Champion Emile Wafflard. He claims his first Belgium and European titles and decides at the age of 24 to fully commit to 3-cushion. As the titles are piling up, Frédéric wins his first 3-cushion World Championship in 1999 after beating Dick Jaspers in the semis and Torbjörn Blomdahl during the finals.

From there, Frédéric Caudron quickly gained recognition from his peers and a Legend was born. So far in his career, Frédéric claimed 21 World Cup titles, 11 World Championships, 14 European Championships and countless titles in his home country. In 2019, he decides to go play for the PBA in Korea where he won 7 tournaments and 1 World Championship, making him a national celebrity with by far the largest number of titles.

In 2024, Frédéric returns to Europe and rejoins the UMB tour. This new chapter in his long career resumed successfully with his participation to the 2nd UMB World Cup of the season in Vietnam at Ho Chi Minh.

Frédéric Caudron: “Iwan Simonis has been sponsoring me since the beginning of my career. Aramith has been another key partner for several years now. As a pro player, but also for amateurs, it is important to play with the most reliable equipment to enjoy the game and improve. With Aramith and Simonis, you benefit from the excellence and consistency of the World’s leading ball and cloth brands.”

Jérôme Poncelet (Group Commercial Director): “It is fantastic to have such legends as Frédéric Caudron partnering with our brands. Aramith and Iwan Simonis being 100% Belgian from the development to the manufacturing of our products, our staff at the factory is also very proud to sponsor a national Legend. We look forward to keep supporting him in this new career chapter.”
