Star Snooker Academy

Established in 2003. 

Star Snooker Academy wishes snooker players from all over the globe a warm welcome to our coaching and elite practice facility.

The Star Snooker Academy isn’t just for snooker professionals — the facilities are available to players of all standards and levels with Coaching, Junior Schools and Gift Days available.

Our expert fully qualified snooker coaches provide full snooker coaching for all abilities in our practice facilities that are state of the art and a world apart from anywhere else! Housed at Sheffield United FC’s first class training facilities near the heart of the city, we boast the very best that snooker has to offer — 11 Star Tables maintained to the same conditions as used in World Professional ranking events, with steel block cushions, TV style lighting, Strachan cloths, Aramith Tournament Champion Balls and professional pocket templates. We also have a spectacular new matchroom with a new Star table, electronic scoreboard and spectator seating.

Keith and Garry, formerly based at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield have moved across town from the English Institute of Sport to Sheffield United Football Club's Training Academy which is now the main practice base of China's number one and 2011 Masters Champion Ding Junhui.

We have over 20 years experience looking after overseas snooker players since 1991.

Also based at Star Snooker Academy are Thai No.1 James Wattana, 2011 Asian Champion Passakorn Suwannawat, 2010 IBSF World Champion Dechawat Poomjang, 2009 IBSF World Champion Thepchaiya Un-Nooh and 2011 IBSF World U21 Champion Thanawat Tirapongpaiboon 2013 Asian U21 Champion Noppon Saengkham all from Thailand. China's 2012 World U21 champion Lyu Haotian,  India's National Champion Aditya Mehta and India's No. 2 Pankaj Advani as well as Lucky Vatnani. The 2011 IBSF World Champion Hossein Vafei Ayouri is also resident here.

Star Academy is a regular practice base for former World professional champions Ronnie O'Sullivan, Peter Ebdon , Ken Doherty and John Higgins.   

We are also proud to be recognised by the EASB and venue for the English snooker finals weekend as well as home to all the English amateur snooker & billiards trophies in our dedicated display cabinet.
