Frames Snooker & Pool Club, Weston-Super-Mare hosted & sponsored an Open Community Coaching session for local players and people new to the sport. The event was facilitated by the West of England Billiards & Snooker Foundation (WEBSF) volunteer coaching team. In addition to FREE advice and guidance on the technicalities of English Billiards & Snooker, attendees could pit their skills in a trick shot competition.

Through regular community coaching sessions, the WEBSF provides a safe and informative environment where players can form new friendships and learn new skills.  Using billiards and snooker as a tool for learning, coaching sessions not only concentrate on developing further knowledge about the game but also help to increase confidence, improve social skills and work on aspects of literacy and numeracy.  Volunteering has also proved to be a successful platform to support personal development.

Spokesperson for the WEBSF said “Our open coaching events are now a regular feature in our calendar of events and compliment the tournament programme which is participated by some of the top amateurs in the region and further afield. The aim is that through activities like this we can attract new players to the sport as well as show the benefits to be gained from improvement and volunteering. Hopefully more clubs will come forward offering to host and sponsor more events like these.”
