Last week I held the Republic of Ireland Billiards & Snooker Association (RIBSA) second junior snooker development day of the season on Sunday the 29th of January in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club in Carlow. All junior player from all around Ireland were invited to attend and I was delighted to see so many talented players from Cork, Waterford, Navan, Newbridge, Carlow and Offaly attending which goes well for the future of our sport in Ireland.
I guided the players to learn the skills of the game and develop good fundamentals in their Cue Action, Cue Ball Control and Potting Skills from 11am to 4pm. The cost to each player was €5.00 and each player received a coaching manual and practice routine booklet.
The players played some snooker to warm up and then they were then shown how to approach the shot and they practiced some key practice routines. Two re-spotted black tournaments were held and they were won by Ronan McGurik from Navan and Adam Quinn from Edenderry.
