First Parkinson’s UK Coaching Sessions Take Place in Stockport

Home » First Parkinson’s UK Coaching Sessions Take Place in Stockport

The first of the recently announced ‘Introduction to Snooker’ coaching sessions, supported by Parkinson’s UK, have taken place this month at the Hazel Grove Snooker Club in Stockport.

Led at the club by WPBSA Level 2 Snooker coach Danny Connolly, the sessions in Stockport have proved a great success with groups enjoying two-hour sessions featuring both basic-level, fun snooker coaching on different drills and techniques, followed by recreational group play.

Support by funding from Parkinson’s UK, the sessions are taking place between February and May and will be held across the country – with seven host clubs, affiliated by the 147 Club Scheme, already confirmed.

Reflecting on the scheme, WPBSA Club and Facilities Manager Bob Hill said: “This is a project that we are incredibly excited and passionate about and we are delighted to have the support of Parkinson’s UK.

“We look forward to welcoming groups to our sessions over the coming months and showcasing the benefits that snooker can offer.”
