Positively Empowering People

Through the SHA Adult Disability Group we help adults with special needs come to a safe and welcoming place to find the support, care and fun that they need. Here people with disabilities can learn a new sport, make new friends and enjoy a group session where they can be themselves. Qualified UK Snooker coaches will provide coaching and provide an engaging environment where people can come to have fun and work on social skills as well as snooker skills.



The adult disability group is an all inclusive snooker group that is available to anyone over 18 who has special needs. This group is designed to provide support, care and social inclusion for people with special needs. Qualified UK Snooker coaches who have a vast wealth of experience supporting people with special needs and are highly skilled, will provide expert snooker coaching. This provides people with the opportunity to play snooker, learn new skills and make friends in a safe, inclusive and engaging atmosphere. We at SHA pride ourselves on the fun and friendly atmosphere that we cultivate in our clubs that allow people to feel safe and supported at all times whilst also ensuring that our service users have a great time. SHA uses snooker as a medium for providing and encouraging personal development programmes and the acquisition of key skills. We use play through snooker to teach key social skills, improve literacy and numeracy and work on personal development all while having fun in a social atmosphere. There is enormous benefit from playing snooker in this way and these sessions really do have a positive impact on health (both physical and mental), growth and happiness. 
If you are interested in joining this group and taking advantage of this fantastic opportunity to play snooker, learn new things and make new friends then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
