In Co Offaly, the first official RILSA Academy was set up by our RILSA National Secretary, Tina Keogh recently. This is one of many clubs and schools who will be forming their own RILSA Academies around Ireland within the coming weeks and months to help promote ladies snooker.
Already a number of women have joined the Academy in Offaly and we in RILSA wish Tina the very best of luck and a big thank you for all your help and support.
World Snooker Coach and RILSA Chairman Dan Carroll along with National Ladies Snooker & Billiards Champion, Annette Newman, visited the academy recently and were delighted with the set up and the enthusiasm from Tina and the ladies that attended the evening.
These Academies will provide much needed help and support to women and girls wishing to take up the sport in the future.
A ladies League will be run at the Academy in the weeks ahead.
