We are pleased to be able to offer coaching sessions and exhibition appearances with 3 x World Pool Champion, Gareth Potts. These sessions are a great opportunity to get coaching from the very best and are a great idea for a gift!

These packages offer a one-to-one coaching session for a full day, or half a day, covering a wide range of skills from basics like cue grip and stance, to the psychology of the game. So whether you are looking to brush up on your skills to impress your mates, or are looking to take pool more seriously, these coaching sessions will teach you the skills you need to know to play like a pro.
