As part of winning his record breaking 6th Snooker & Billiards Ireland National Irish Amateur Championship title earlier in the year Brendan O Donoghue from Nenagh was awarded a free session with our National Coach PJ Nolan in the SBI HQ in Carlow to prepare for the 2023 World IBSF Snooker Championships which will be held in Qatar.
During this camp, Brendan had sessions on Break-Building, Safety, Long Potting and Technique checks. Brendan received a training program booklet with practice drills plus a sports phycology booklet to help him work on his mind fitness.
All the latest training aids will be used in the camp to enhance the session like the Mini Domin Eye, Master Doctor, Str8aim SA-1 & SA-2, Chris Henry Balls, Academy laser, EBSA Coaching Balls to help to get him on the line of aim and develop a smoother stroke in his delivery.
PJ said he was very impressed with the commitment and attitude of Brendan during the session and the confidence is very high and it was a pleasure to train him.
Brendan said he was delighted to have a session with PJ. PJ has a way to explain everything so clearly and get you in the zone. Brendan thanked SBI for arranging the session as he feels it will help him prepare his best for this upcoming World Championships.
