Hear what he has to say… 

L-payneHello my name is Lionel Payne,

Over the years I have studied various coaching manuals to improve my own game. I was once asked back then to help several friends which I did quite successfully. Then a 12-year-old girl came into my club and asked if we had a coach. Her name is Kelly Fisher and the rest, as they say, is history!

I am initially working on a Monday night at Bradford 6:30pm to 8:00pm with an adult group coaching session which costs £5 per head. I am also making myself available for one to one sessions at a cost of £25 per hour inclusive of table cost of-course I already am resident coach at St.Michaels in Wakefield and Cue Club in Pontefract also Great Preston Snooker Club.

I have nearly 30 years coaching experience and my pupils have a record of 11 World titles, i am a keen player myself and have picked up a good few trophy’s along the way including the Yorkshire Doubles Championship back in 2010.

If you’re interested in snooker 8ball or 9ball pool and would like to improve then come along to one of my coaching sessions and make your interest known to me, i am very approachable and have a great understanding of people’s needs.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
