About Us

Tim Dunkley is a World Snooker qualified coach based in Southampton, Hampshire. He was taught by Del Hill.


He specialises in helping beginners.


Tim’s local club is Chandler’s Ford Snooker Club, which is just off the M3 between Southampton and Winchester. There, he helps club-owner Ray Cooper run the Saturday morning junior leagues.


His rate there is £15-£20 an hour for one-to-one coaching, written notes afterwards and a free ‘after sales’ service by e-mail for any queries or questions.

He also coaches at Waterlooville Sports Bar, where he runs junior leagues from 4.30-6.30pm every Monday and Wednesday. But the coaching rate there is £20 an hour. However, those travelling from the Portsmouth or West Sussex areas may find that venue easier and quicker to reach.

And he has recently been invited to operate at Cue T's Social & Snooker Lounge in Marchwood. Again, the rate there is £20 an hour.


All three rates at all three clubs include the cost of the table and any guest fees.

Tim is now available every weekday during the day and also some evenings and some Sundays.


Tim, who has an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) certificate, has coached men, women, boys and girls from the age of five to over 80 and is prepared to travel.


As well as snooker coaching, Tim is also a widely published freelance writer.


He contributes to the weekly snooker page in the Southampton-based Southern Daily Echo and has had articles published in national and international magazines.


A former press officer for the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association, he is now press officer for Cuestars, which runs snooker tournaments across the South of England.
