WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Gurdas Singh, 22/11/2018
I had a session with Steve after watching a couple of his YouTube videos. I really enjoyed the session but most of all learnt a lot in just a short space of time. Steve helped me to correct a fundamental flaw in my game which I am really excited to start to put into practice. Steve made me feel really comfortable and relaxed and even when I was trying to play a shot that kept going wrong Steve made me feel at real ease. Over all I would highly recommend coaching from Steve.

I had my first session with Steve today and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He was quickly able to correct my stance and technique, giving me plenty to focus on safe in the knowledge that I am now practicing the right things. He has a really warm manner that is encouraging without being patronising. He's clearly passionate about the game and I left with a renewed vigour to improve... maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks!? Well worth the 2 hour round trip to see him. Oh and the tables and club that he teaches from (as seen in his videos) are top notch. Do yourself a favour and give him a call. Thanks Steve, I'll be seeing you again soon :)

1) What was the obstacle that would have prevented you from booking coaching?
It was a long way from Germany, Town Borken, so I hesistate about is it worth it to drive all the long Way?
Would I get what I needed at my Level as a 20-30 Breaker (High Break 49)?
Would I feel comfortable there as a Stranger?
Would I feel intimidated to get educated by a WPBSA World Snooker Coach with such massive knowledge about the game?
Is my old School English enough to understand all the
conversation between Steve Barton and me?
2) What did you find as a result of booking coaching with Steve?
What I find there put all my obstacles immediately at ease. Steve's nice Club feels very familiar. Three Table with excellent material and conditions. After the first little small talk I felt in a safe zone even about my old school English because Steve explain it all in a plain understandable way. My 3 Days x 4 Hour coaching time I enjoy very much and the time passes quicker than I expect.
3) What did you like the most about your experience booking coaching?
What I like the most independently from his massive knowledge is Steve's way to approach to me as a player and human. He definitely don't forget his own way from a 30 breaker to his high Standard now. I felt very understood and get that Input from Steve that helps me to improve from my Level to the next.
4) What would be 3 other benefits of booking coaching with Steve?
No minute of this 12 Hours coaching I felt intimidated, instead Steve give me the right pieces of knowledge at the right time which was individual for my level so that I have chance to digest and make it to my own. I drive Home with notes from Steve in a PDF-Report that covers exactly what we worked on during the training. I love the Notes because there a Photos from every single exercise we made with fine text explaining what's important and what not to forget. So valuable for me to work at home further. I loved this private atmosphere in his fine own Club.
5) Would you recommend booking coaching with Steve? If so, why?
I highly recommend to book coaching with Steve. I definitely get what is needed to improve my Game to the next level.
6) Is there anything else you would like to add?
To my luck there was only 20 km away from Walsall the China Open - Qualifier running in Cannock. So I get the full day of Snooker for only 5 pounds per day entry. If I reach my next Level and feel like I am on a plateau, I come back again and looking with one eye on the Qualifier schedule in Cannock.
