My 147 Academy returned to the beautiful city of Gérardmer in the North East of France to hold another snooker camp which was organised by Jean-Michel Martin from the Gérardmer Billiard Club. It was a great honour to be asked to return to Gérardmer which is also known as the pearl of the Vosges to coach various standards from a former International player to very young stars of the future.
Jean-Michel Martin has been coaching very hard for the past year, using my 147academy system and I was very impressed with his player’s technical improvement. He is guiding some boys and girl players who have some great potential. Every players Stance, Address Position, Grip, Cue Actions were analysed. The players received a DVD of their sessions to study as I feel this is crucial in developing good fundamentals. The players practiced routines to improve their potting skills, as this is an area where I feel they need to work on. I was delighted to see all the players trying to master each routine.
I would like to personally thank Michaël Martin for translating throughout the camp and I was delighted to see his overall improvement since last year. Finally, a big thank you goes to Jean-Michel Martin the President of the Gérardmer Snooker Club and all his members for inviting me back and making my visit a memorable and enjoyable stay.
I look forward to holding another training camp in 2018.
