2019 WPBSA Coaching Course

Our next Coaching Course will take place over the weekend of 27th & 28th April 2019 at the Northern Snooker Centre in Leeds, immediately following the short format World Championship

So far we have 42 World Billiards coaches worldwide and we are hoping to increase this number significantly during this course.

Our head of coaching Martin Goodwill will be assisted by head coach Phillip Welham and multiple world champion Peter Gilchrist.

This will be a two day course covering how to coach the basics of the game.

WPBSA’s Chris Motley will be in attendance for a presentation on child protection.

Course participants will have to pass a pre-course online exam, plus three practical exams on day two of the course.


For the first time we are also adding a billiards seminar on Monday 29th which all qualified World Billiards coaches will be invited to attend. Peter Gilchrist is confirmed as the first guest speaker and we hope to add others in due course. Coaches will be able to discuss both coaching and playing techniques with guest speakers in an open forum without the restriction of the more rigid structure of the preceding coaching course.

The seminar will also be free to attend for coaches who have qualified on previous courses.

The price of the coaching course (including the seminar) is £199.
