West of England Billiards and Snooker Foundation Logo

The West of England Billiards & Snooker Foundation (WEBSF) is a not-for-profit community group which is run by a team of volunteers. We pride ourselves on providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to participate in billiards and snooker through coaching, tournaments and volunteering.

By providing a safe and informative environment as a platform for development, we aim to support participants realise their full potential and future aspirations.

This announcement was made by the WEBSF recently on their website:

WEBSF announcement: we’re planning our return

After what feels like a long period of inactivity, the WEBSF management team has started to meet and talk about plans for the 2022/23 season and beyond.

Our activity will continue to be shaped around coachingtournaments, and volunteering, which are still considered the core aspects of what we do.

Challenges we’ve faced

The last few years have been some of the most difficult to manage during the WEBSF’s history. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a stark reminder to prioritise physical and mental health and wellbeing over everything else.

Given our ambition to create and sustain participation in cue sports, it has been very difficult to take the decision to stop our activity for an extended period of time. We know this will have had an impact on players, volunteers, and businesses.

Things to get excited about

We will provide more updates and details soon, but here’s a taste of what’s to come.

We will review the formats and structures behind coaching activity to ensure that we are delivering high-quality coaching to individuals and groups.

Our plan is to organise a small number of tournaments within the 2022/23 season across billiards and snooker disciplines.

We intend to continue our efforts to recruit more volunteers to the foundation. The more we can share responsibility and acquire new skills, the more effectively we can sustain our activity.

Thank you

We’d like to thank everyone who has stuck with us for your continued support and patience.

We really look forward to the next chapter and hope you’ll get involved.
