“In 2004 I had a vision to create an organisation that facilitates ‘Billiards & Snooker for all’, no matter what background, standard, age, gender or ability. I could not have imagined that the WEBSF would still be operational today. It just goes to show what a small team of hard working, dedicated volunteers can achieve when working in synergy.”
