My latest Austrian National Training Camp was held in the HSEBC Cue Sports Academy in Vienna, Austria. This camp was again organised by the Austrian Billiards & Snooker Association with twelve players invited to attend this two-day camp.

The Players

Florian Nüßle, Oskar Charlesworth, Jérôme Liedtke, Tajmeet Grover, Mario Bodlos, Mike Busse, Arif Hussaini, Andreas Ploner, Thomas Janzso, Philipp Koch, Kapitany Elias and Billiard International Martin Schmidt attended this intense training camp to prepare for next months National Championships.

The Camp Winners

I held different types of competitions during the camp to monitor the player’s performances. The first day was all about long potting and scoring. The winner was Florian Nüßle with a stunning display with Andreas Ploner in second place and Thomas Janzso, Philipp Koch and Jérôme Liedtke in joint third place.

On the second day I held various Match-Play competitions and the winner was Oskar Charlesworth who stayed unbeaten the whole day with nine victories in a row, Mario Bodlos finished in second place with Thomas Janzso, Philipp Koch and Jérôme Liedtke in joint third place.

Training Plan

During this camp I worked with the players on improving their Technique, Break Building skills and Safety Games with specific academy Technical, Mental, Scoring and Match-Play routines. I really feel the players are developing their game with every camp. All the players practiced from 10am – 6pm and it was a pleasure training them again as their commitment was superb.


All the players received videos from the coaching camp along with a copy of the new training booklet to work on during each training session at home.

Thank You

I would personally like again to thank the Austrian Association for inviting me to work with the players and I am already looking forward to holding the next camp in February 2020. 

Finally, I would like to thank Austrian President and Sport Director Christian Fock and National Coach Chau Zi Kim for their assistance during the camp and I wish Austrian player Florian Nüßle good luck in this month’s World Snooker European Masters Qualifier in England and all the players good luck in their National Championships in January. 

Come on Austria!!!!
