Founder Nic Barrow’s story:
What makes me qualified to trust me with your game?
My greatest passion is helping club players and enthusiasts crack the secrets of the game. I have been in where you are in the game, and do what I do to help you lose your frustration… and get the enjoyment you seek.
My goal in the snooker world is to offer the best customer service, in lesson experience, and improvement per £ spent...
