History of Snooker in North Notts
When NNCLL took over the Arena in January 2006 all the snooker teams, who had been based at the venue, had left, 'jumped ship', understandably, due to the uncertainty of the venues future.
However, due to the hard work of coaches Daz Presgrave and Steve Mallender we are now back to three teams playing out of the Arena in the local Worksop & District Snooker League, plus a thriving Junior Snooker Academy.
The teams and players over the past 10 years have won many titles and cups, former Junior Snooker Academy player, Ashley Carty, achieved his personal goal in 2018 when he successfully reached the professional snooker ranks, well done to Ash from everyone at the Arena.
Latest News: Ashley Carty and Hayden Stanniland, two former Junior Academy players, played in the 2020 World Snooker finals qualifiers, unfortunately, 19 year old Hayden didn't quite make the Crucible, however, 25 year old Ash Carty did and played former world champion Stuart 'ball run'' Bingham, putting up a great display before eventually losing out 10-7 in the first round.
The Arena boasts two World Professional Billiards & Snooker Association qualified coaches, Daz Presgrave and Steve Mallender who are available for coaching, they can be contacted using the details below.

Junior Snooker Academy
Over 9 years ago the Arena, in partnership with local snooker player Daz Presgrave, worked together in setting up what is now a very successful Junior Snooker Academy.
The great snooker facilities offered at the Arena & Daz Presgrave's snooker skills, recently obtained 'Pro' coaching badge, have joined forces to set up the Academy and offer local youngsters the opportunity to play this great game.
From the first session the Academies popularity has grown and now every Saturday afternoon between 10am and 12 noon we have between 24 and 35 juniors attend the Academy.
Since inception the Arena have also added the coaching skills of another local guy, Steve Mallender, who also has his 'Pro' coaching badge and it's been fantastic to witness the growth of the local junior players over the years, with no fewer than six currently playing in the local league.
The star of the show has to be Ashley Carty (pictured top right with a couple of his recent trophies), who started in the Academy 8 years ago at the age of 12, and now aged just 20, Ash has been very close to winning a two year exemption to join the 'Pro' tour.
On Saturday July 19th 2014 Ash played in the English Under 21's Final against Leicester's Joe O'Connor over 15 frames with Ash running out a worthy winner.
We are all confident that Ash will succeed in his quest to become a 'Pro' and play the big boys with possibly an appearance at the 'Crucible' in a few years time.
In the meantime some of the current youngsters to watch out for are Macauley Croft, who won the 2013 Summer League title at the Arena , Hari Spencer, Oliver Turner.
In 2018 former Junior Snooker Academy member achieved his goal when he became a professional snooker player, well done Ash, let's hope he is the first of many!!
