WEBSF Member David Del’Boy Church (center of photo) is one of six WDBSA players that will be competing in the WSF Championships at the Dubai World Trade Centre in March – April 2019. The WDBSA events will be played alongside the Seniors event and the World Women’s Snooker Championship. David won his ‘ticket’ by virtue of winning his group in the inaugural Parris Cues Champion of Champions event at the SWSA Gloucester this past weekend. His previous successes can be seen on his website

David is open to learning from a number of avenues and for the past eight months has been the recipient of online coaching and support from one of our WEBSF Volunteer Coaches. David works really hard at his game and is willing to try anything in order to improve. This tenacity and willingness to learn has been a significant factor in his success on the table.

Well Done David and Good Luck in Dubai in the new year.

A little help could change lives

World Disability Billiards & Snooker (WDBS) player David Church is also a member of the WEBSF. Like several other WEBSF members David is desperate for some help towards funding his ambition to play snooker and hopefully realise his potential at the highest level.

David is not without some reward for his efforts. So far he has reached the final stages of the Northern Classic, Manchester Classic, Welsh Open Six Reds, the Belgian Open. The highlight of his playing career saw him lift the WDBS World Open Snooker title in 2017. He also won a qualifying match in the Paul Hunter Classic in 2017.

David works hard at his game on the practice table, as do most hopefuls. However, this is the easy bit! the difficulty is finding adequate support towards the expenses needed to compete in tournaments. In spite of a local TV appeal, posting over 300 letters to potential sponsors and investigating many potential sources for funding he has only had five responses, none of which have borne fruit.

Anyone interested in helping David, or any of our WEBSF players, can contact him. Details on his website or contact the WEBSF
