After Some valiant fundraising efforts and a long wait operating out of various venues across the city from Hillsborough, to Broomgrove, to High Green and Walkley, the Stephen Harrison Academy can now make the long awaited announcement that we have now found a home of our own. SHA will now operate out of our brand new state of the art snooker club: Snooker Rooms.
SHA's qualified UK Snooker coaches and playworkers will now provide expert snooker coaching for all ages and abilities out of our elite state of the art practice facilities based next to the Olympic legacy park, at the east end of Sheffield. Boasting three full size top class Riley Snooker Tables and one three quarter size Burroughes and Watts table for our smaller members.
The quality of our brand new Rileys snooker tables (kindly donated by Dan Kirkland of Tribepad ) is impeccable and our services users will surely benefit from such excellent tables. Snooker Rooms also includes a top quality table football table, very kindly donated by OVO Spaces, and multiple gaming facilities to further entertain our service users in a safe, welcoming and fun environment.
We also have full DDA compliant disabled toilet facilities and wheelchair access to further extend the accessibility of our great venue and great services.
SHA is beyond excited to finally be moving into our new state of the art venue at Snooker Rooms so that we can provide a top quality home to host our innovative provisions using snooker as a medium to facilitate and encourage personal development programmes, nutrition, mentoring and employment opportunities for a wide variety of disadvantaged groups.
These include young offenders, people with physical and learning disabilities or mental health problems and young people and adults not in education, employment or training.
With the move to our new home SHA can improve and expand upon the amazing work we do to provide care and support for children with special needs, and we hope that our community is just as excited as we are about these possibilities.
Snooker Rooms is located in the G1 Business Centre on Leeds Road close to the Olympic Legacy Park and Oasis Academy Don Valley.
