"Frank Callan - Life and Times"

Frank's love of the game was originally expressed in a love of playing, becoming avery good amateur in the days when there was little recognition to be had from this - and certainly no gold at the end of the rainbow.

In contrast with today's prodigies, Frank Callan was thirty-two when he made his first century break. At nineteen he was the best player in Fleetwood just down the coast from Blackpool, but went into the army in 1940 and did not play again until he was twenty-seven years of age.

He then won the North West of England Championships and a few other substantial amateur events, but many a week would not practise from one week to the next due to increasing work commitments.

When nothing much was happening in snooker in the 1960's Frank turned his attentions to golf, another game which lends itself to the minute dissection of technique which so fascinates him.

A back injury in the late 1960's ended his participation in golf and he returned to snooker again, securing the Fylde Championship in 1972 and winning a couple of other local events.

It was clear however that at the age of fifty-two his best playing days were behind him, due in part to the back injury that forced him to re-modify his technique.

In later life he found that he could make a major contribution to the game of snooker through analysing the mechanics of technique in an entirely fresh way and by challenging traditional methods of coaching as expressed in books or as standard policy in World SnookerAssociation coaching courses.

Frank's outstanding success as a coach suggests that many official coaching principles should now be re-considered.

This firmed his opinion that the ideal way is to find a technique that suits an individual's body, as opposed to moulding the body unnaturally to a preconceived technique.

Frank's philosophy is that all coaching must be flexible to suit the requirements of an individual.

Now as the most successful coach in the history of snooker Frank continues to work withmany of the top players in the world, but also assists seasoned amateurs, up and coming youngsters and new beginners to the game.
