WEBSF announcement: we’re planning our return

After what feels like a long period of inactivity, the WEBSF management team has started to meet and talk about plans for the 2022/23 season and beyond.

Our activity will continue to be shaped around coaching, tournaments, and volunteering, which are still considered the core aspects of what we do.

Challenges we’ve faced

The last few years have been some of the most difficult to manage during the WEBSF’s history. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a stark reminder to prioritise physical and mental health and wellbeing over everything else.

Given our ambition to create and sustain participation in cue sports, it has been very difficult to take the decision to stop our activity for an extended period of time. We know this will have had an impact on players, volunteers, and businesses.

Things to get excited about

We will provide more updates and details soon, but here’s a taste of what’s to come.

  • Coaching
    We will review the formats and structures behind coaching activity to ensure that we are delivering high-quality coaching to individuals and groups.
  • Tournaments
    Our plan is to organise a small number of tournaments within the 2022/23 season across billiards and snooker disciplines.
  • Volunteering
    We intend to continue our efforts to recruit more volunteers to the foundation. The more we can share responsibility and acquire new skills, the more effectively we can sustain our activity.

Thank you

We’d like to thank everyone who has stuck with us for your continued support and patience.

We really look forward to the next chapter and hope you’ll get involved.

We will continue to monitor the guidance from the Government and sporting governing bodies to inform any decisions we make.

What can you do in the meantime?

We are still here

Important coronavirus update

As a precautionary measure to help reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have postponed our coaching and tournament activity.

Our coaching and tournaments bring people together from different age groups and locations. Some of our participants may also have an underlying health condition. Therefore, we are acting decisively to reduce the risks of viral spread by taking the responsible action to postpone our coaching and tournament activity.

We will continue to monitor the guidance from the Government and sporting governing bodies. Events will be rescheduled as soon as we believe it is safe to do so.

Please visit the Government website for the latest advice and guidance about COVID-19.

How long will activity be postponed?

The safety and wellbeing of all our participants and volunteers is our priority. Therefore, coaching and tournaments will resume when we are sure it is safe to do so.

Please continue to check our website and social media channels for updates.

Will you get a refund if you’ve paid your tournament entry?

If you have paid for an event that has been postponed, we will refund your entry.

Will you lose your place if you’ve booked a coaching session?

When the coaching session has been rescheduled, we will contact you to see if you can still attend the session. If you unable to attend, your place will be made available to someone else.

Can you still get 1-2-1 coaching?

Even though 1-2-1 coaching does not bring a large group of people together, it still brings people into close contact for one or two hours.

Therefore, we will not be running 1-2-1 coaching until further notice.
