Passionate, enthusiastic and determined are some words that I can describe myself about the sport of snooker.
I play snooker regualarly at an amateur level, my best performance being an area finalist for the Rothmans UK Snooker Championship.... many moons ago!!
I qualified as a EASB (English Association for Snooker and Billiards) coach in 1998 for a period of six years. Within that time I coached individuals from different venues and from young and old.
There was a brief pause in my snooker coaching progression due to family and work commitments. But now, I'm back!
I have just recently qualified as a WPBSA World Snooker Coach based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
*I'll be coaching "one to ones" and "group sessions" @ Stotfold Conservative Club, Stotfold.

One thing I'd like to add, which may help some of you. I have worked in the Media Broadcasting industry for the last 25 years and have vast experience within the field of "LIVE" broadcasting and I once had a stint (9 months) at presenting as a children's presenter in South Africa.
So, if your a professional and suffer from the lime light or just an amateur player, I can help with your pressures.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for future coaching.

ONE TO ONE COACHING
Individual or one to one coaching is the most effective way to give and receive technical coaching in snooker.
My attention to detail and enthusiastic approach to the techniques and aspects of the game will leave you wanting to learn more.
Group coaching is slightly different, although you will still get my attention to detail but I'll throw in some FUN elements too. Making sure that your focus is undivided.
If you prefer a snooker coaching "Taster Session", then we can focus more on the FUN element of snooker coaching and tailor the session to your requirements and needs.
Whether you are just starting to play or if you have lots of experience, each coaching session will be prepared to suit the individual players standards, requirements and capabilities.
Snooker Coaching Services including Tips, Technique, Form, Technical Advice, Snooker Training, Snooker Mental Game.
