Why choose a professional snooker coach?

Jim is considered one of the top coaches in snooker as his list of past successes, including world ranked stars, demonstrate what he is cabable of. His list of successful players, both amateur and professional, continues to grow as can be seen in both the News section and Testimonial section of the website. Jim also has a very successful Junior Academy with champions and International players in every age group.

Another reason to choose Jim is, as a player at the top professional level he was able to reach 29th in the World Rankings and was the first Scottish player to play at the Crucible, winning matches against many of the top professional players.

Having 30 years experience as a player and a coach, Jim can spot the smallest of things in players, that other coaches can't, and by correcting these little faults he can help you make the difference between winning and loosing.

That is why you should choose Jim Donnelly as your professional coach.
