Snooker Q School - Open Days"Knock! Knock!"
"It’s me, a true snooker fan and a keen player who wants to enroll in the snooker circuit, but I need more practice and I want to know how I can become a genuine player."
"Then, come in child ... actually right now we are giving a tour to everyone who’s interested in knowing how the Q School will function and you can also have some practice with our couches."
"Yippee!", says the future snooker star
What you’ve just read is a preview of what the Snooker Q School is about to do: it opens its doors for six days, so all those who are interested in absorbing more info about the programme and what’s all about can get a clearer image.
So February 12 to 14 (Saturday to Monday) and February 18 to 20 (Friday to Sunday) between 10 pm and 4 am the Academy within the English Institute of Sport - Sheffield will embrace all of you who want to pay them a visit and learn more about the road from a club snooker player to a professional snooker player.
As you all know anyone can enroll into Snooker Q School, anyone age 16 or over (until May 11, 2011 when the programme will start for good).
There will be a chance to familiarizse yourself with the venue, practice on the professional standard tables, receive a few tips from official coach Andy Highfield, and ask any questions about the Q School. There's no need to book - just turn up on the day - as World Snooker stats.
So, don’t be shy and clear you schedule for the first half of February if you really want to make it to the top (they have 12 places in the professional circuit for grabs ;-) ). Of course that school or coaches don’t provide miracles, but if you are talented, ambitious and eager to become better and better, then all of that put together will definitely guarantee you a place in the circuit. :-)
