CueZone Into Schools – Case Study

CueZone Into Schools is part of the WPBSA’s ambition to grow snooker at grass roots level. This initiative will help the sport to be played in schools across the UK.

This case study is from St Augustine’s School in Lancashire:

We began our CueZone Into Schools club in October 2013 and it has become very popular.
The club runs very informally and pupils are welcome to ‘drop in’ at any point during the lunchtime session. There was a successful Christmas Knockout tournament in which 32 players from all year groups took part. The players are keen to improve their skills and each week they are getting better and better.
In addition to the Snooker Club, the Maths Department have been using the tables for intervention work with selected groups of pupils. They have found that using the tables has had an impact on these groups; particularly with number bonds and other such numeracy skills. These groups tend to be between 5-10 pupils at a time.
I have four year 11 pupils who have volunteered to be coaches. All are working very well and are enjoying the opportunity. They are looking forward to completing the Level 1 WPBSA World Snooker Coach Award.
Future plans include a tournament later this term along with possible matches against local schools who also participate in the project.
