The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA) are delighted to announced that the ‘Introduction To Snooker’ sessions in support of Parkinson’s UK will be taking place at the Elite Snooker Club in Preston between March and May.

Seven host clubs across the country, affiliated by the 147 Club Scheme, had initially been announced with the Elite Snooker Club in Preston now bringing this total to eight.

The sessions, which take place between February and May, will engage with local Parkinson’s UK groups to offer free two-hour sessions hosted by WPBSA coaches offering basic-level, fun snooker coaching, as well recreational group play and the opportunity to socialise with fellow group members.

The WPSBA’s Head of Coaching and Training Development Manager Chris Lovell will host the sessions in Preston with the first taking place at 12:30 on Monday 18th March.
