The Republic of Ireland Billiards & Snooker Association held another Snooker in Schools project for St Mary’s Secondary School in the Edenderry Snooker Club on Tuesday the 28th of February.
This schools development program objective is to help grow the interest of our sport within schools and the 14 boys and girls from St Mary’s were invited to learn the basics of the game from the RIBSA National Snooker Coach PJ Nolan and RIBSA Coaches Ger Murray and Declan Quinn.
The boys and girls learned how to develop a good Bridge Hand and improve their Cue Action through demonstrations by PJ who is one of the world’s leading snooker coaches. RIBSA who are the governing body of Billiards and Snooker in the Republic of Ireland were delighted to have St Mary’s from Edenderry availing of PJ’s coaching skills.
The boys and girls said they really enjoyed the session and they thanked the RIBSA team and Edenderry Snooker Club for hosting the session. Ger Murray hopes to invite other schools around Edenderry to hold future days with PJ.
RIBSA hope the ‘Snooker in Schools program will help to grow the game Nationwide and a number of other schools are lined up over the next few months. If you know any other school who would like to become part of our Snooker in Schools project they should email firstname.lastname@example.org
RIBSA would like to thank Ger Murray, Declan Quinn and the Edenderry Snooker Club for making the Snooker in Schools a success today. Well Done !!!!
