Joe Swail, a current tour professional who attended the course in September, said: “I had a great few days doing the WPBSA World Snooker Coaching Course. I met a lot of new faces and learned so much more. The experience, the professional set up and the support of the WS team will help me massively in promoting this excellent game and taking it forward.”
Kevin Uzzell: “I’m currently living in Thailand and flew back just to attend the WPBSA Level 2 coaching course. The long journey back was so worth it, the course was extremely well put together and the staff and everybody on the team running the course were so professional, it was a great experience and was very rewarding. I would recommend anybody with an interest in snooker and teaching to seriously consider coming on board and growing this sport as a recognised coach.”
