David Horrix

Coaching Level: Level 2 – 1st4Sport

Coaching Licence: Snooker: Child & Adults Coach


Area – West Yorkshire and international tours.

Details of current coaching activities – In addition to adult individual coaching and squads I also run the Paul Hunter Foundation sessions from three clubs in the area.

Hobbies & Interests – I enjoy all aspects of snooker and other sports and spend considerable time researching the sport and writing about snooker and coaching.

Why did you get involved in coaching? – Many years ago my son played sport to a high standard and I helped him with developing creative coaching routines. I think I can provide structure and enjoyment for those wishing to develop their game and feel that I can do this as well or better than most.

Brief summary of coaching experience – This goes back to the 70s when as a youngster I was very interested in improving my technique. Other juniors asked me to help them and some did pretty well. Much later after a break from the game I started to play again and help youngsters – since then it’s developed into a job where I provide a very high quality service.
