Coach Background Information
I did not pick up a cue till I was in my forties, and then, I only played snooker. At the insistence of my dad, I started playing billiards and immediately fell in love with the game. I started collecting videos and DVD’s to learn more about the game. I also had a couple of lessons with Robbie Foldvari.
After a few years I started refereeing billiards and qualified as a Class 1 Billiards referee having umpired the Australian Open and National titles. I also refereed in the IBSF World Championships when they were held in Australia.
Unfortunately, my playing standard does not match my referee grade. However, I have studied the game and can guide people through most of the shots required to play proficiently.
I would like to introduce more players to the game and feel I can provide a good foundation for them to have an enjoyable game.
