"I first attended SHA while I was at school. I enjoyed playing pool, but then gained an interest in snooker. Initially I wanted to improve my technique and develop my game. That was only the beginning of my journey, as I achieved so much more and acquired a wide variety of knowledge and skills. I progressed quickly and passed all six awards. Now I am a qualified SHA tutor."
"I’ve been involved in sport and fitness, at grass roots level for over forty years. SHA gives me the opportunity to channel my knowledge and skills within an inclusive, learning environment achieving positive outcomes.”
