Alfred Lagache (24 October 1889 – 18 August 1971)[1] was a French professional three-cushion billiards player.

Career[edit]

A number of players from France have won world championships in different disciplines of carom billiards, but Lagache has been the only Frenchman to ever win the UMB World Three-cushion Championship, taking the title in 1935 and again in 1937.[2]

He also won the CEB European Three-cushion Championship in 1935, 1939, 1947 and 1949.[2]
