Fan Zensen travelled all of the way from Singapore to make the Course and said: “Great course by great trainers! All three humble trainers were not there just to certify but to impart their vast knowledge in the game and skills in coaching students to play good billiards. This course helps to set the foundation to propel English Billiards popularity and thereby raise the appreciation level of the beautiful game. I am really glad to have made the trip and been accepted into your purpose driven group to promote the game. Thank you WPBSA!”
