The WPBSA is today saddened to announce that Adam Wood, a qualified WPBSA Snooker Coach, has passed away at the age of 53.
Wood, who successfully completed the 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Snooker Coaching in May 2019, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour just nine weeks ago and remained positive throughout, before he sadly lost his battle on Friday.
His wife Maggie paid tribute: “He was my husband and best friend, as well as an amazing father, grandfather and friend to many during his life.
“He was incredibly passionate about his snooker and was a jolly, happy person, who was incredibly funny and had a huge, generous heart.”
Chris Lovell, WPBSA Head of Coaching and Training Development added: “When Adam took part in our coaching course in Leeds it was obvious to everyone about his passion for snooker and a willingness to help others. He successfully completed the course and graduated at a very high standard with a vision to grow the game within his area.
“We would like to offer our condolences to Maggie and Adam’s family at this sad time.”
