My 147academy travelled to the city of Vienna in Austria this weekend to hold my latest National Team Training Camp for the Austrian Billiards & Snooker Association in the HSEBC Cue Sports Academy.  This camp was focused on preparing the Austrian players for the 2017 IBSF World Snooker Championships which is being held in Qatar in November.

During this camp Markus Pfistermüller, Oskar Charlesworth, Florian Nüßle and Jerome Liedtke, Eloas Kapitany, Mario Bodlos, Sebest Hussein and Andreas Ploner attended both days from 10am – 6pm and all players were excellent and are improving each camp.

Mental Training Session

The camp started off with the second of the two hour special mental training session by leading Mental Coach Dieter Simoncsics.  This is aimed at helping the players to become mentally stronger.

New Training Plan designed

During the past six months I have been working alongside Austrian Coach Kim Chau Zi on a system of recording the player’s results during the last six camps and today the satistics were announced with superb results. 

All the players received a CD with videos from the camp along with the new training booklets containing the new specific Break Building Routines and shots and drills we will be using for the next chapter of the training plan. The new plan will begin at the next camp covering Technical, Mental, Scoring and Match-Play.

Winners at Camp

15 year old Florian Nüßle who is the current number won the Break Building challenge with a six superb breaks with Andreas Ploner winning both match-play challenges with great tactical snooker and Markus Pfistermüller again impressed with his long potting to win the long potting challenge.

World IBSF - Qatar

The Austrian men’s team for Qatar will be Florian Nüßle, Andreas Ploner and Markus Pfistermüller. In the Master’s event it will be Christian Hochmayer and Bernhard Müllner. I wish them all the success and I know they will enjoy playing in Qatar.

Thank You

I would like to thank Austrian B & S Sport Director Christian Fock and Kim Chau Zi for all his hard work and dedication on the stats for the camps and for his assistance throughout this training camp.  Finally I would like to thank all the players for their commitment and I really feel Austrian Snooker is getting stronger and stronger each camp.
