Since 2004, our organisation has been maintained purely on the kindness and dedication of our volunteers. We are proud to have such a great team of people on hand and we are always looking to encourage other volunteers to get involved in whatever way they can.
We are a progressive organisation that continues to develop and grow which can only be achieved through the ongoing support from the people who help and get involved. Volunteering is also a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and can also improve your health and wellbeing.
There are different types of volunteer roles available which do not always require technical knowledge about the games of billiards and snooker and we remain flexible about the creation of future roles that can help us achieve our overall aims. Opportunities can be short or long-term and can even be project-based. Our current roles include:
- Coaching Assistant
- Tournament Director
- Training Coordinator
- Sports Psychologist
- Media & Marketing Officer
- Administrative support
“Over the last eight years this Foundation has helped me on so many different levels – they have no idea. They have been a family. This volunteering-based Foundation has and is still helping me to overcome the stroke I suffered in 2011.”Darren, Volunteer Coach, Tournament Director and Management Team member
