Help us shape the 2019/20 season

Apart from coaching sessions, which carry on all year round, all the WEBSF tournaments and events for the 2018-19 season have now been completed. Well done to the winners and commiserations to the rest.

Thanks to everyone, especially the Volunteers, the Sponsors (Totally Reward) and the Venues (Jesters, Top Q, 147 Club, Galaxy TQ, Frames Snooker & Pool and Exeter Snooker Club). All have given much and asked for little in return.

For the Management Team there is still work to be done. The WEBSF Annual Draw takes place on the 1st June, with a top prize of a Hand Made cue & Case with extensions etc. (valued at over £240). Generously donated by cue maker Tony Reed, Plymouth. Tickets are still available from any of our Management Team.

We also have a couple of meetings looking back at the past season, at what went well and what we might need to work on to help us plan for next season and move the foundation forward. If you have any ideas, suggestions or want to know more about becoming a WEBSF Volunteer, please contact us.

Have a great summer and keep an eye on our website, facebook group and twitter for information about tournaments and activities for next season.
