On the weekend of Saturday and Sunday the 1st & 2nd of September RIBSA will be holding a training camp in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club in Carlow to prepare our teams for this year’s Home Internationals which will be played from the 7th – 14th of September.

This year leading Irish professional snooker player Fergal O Brien who is currently ranked at number 32 in the professional game will assist our National Coach PJ Nolan to guide our players on working on the correct fundamentals.

Fergal will talk to the players to advise them on how to train and the psychology of achieving a good performance in Pontins at the Home Internationals. PJ will work on the player’s techniques and outline the training program for all the players.

The weekend camp will be divided into coaching and training camp on the Saturday and on Sunday there will be a team’s tournament for the players to practice their match-play.
