(The coaches at the 2017 coaching course with club managers Mukesh and Svetlana Parmar)

The December 2017 coaching course in Leicester resulted in 10 new WPBSA World Billiards coaches, bringing the total number up to 42 worldwide.

Our Head of Coaching Martin Goodwill put together a two day course covering how to coach the basics of the game. He was assisted by Peter Gilchrist, Rob Hall and WPBSA child protection officer Chris Motley.

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