Cuestars Academy Snooker App

For those that don’t know, John Hunter is a World Snooker Qualified Coach with over 30 years experience. In this time, John has been teaching and running Cuestars, a grass roots snooker scheme built around taking players of any standard through the various coaching levels in preparation to enjoy at a higher level or God willing, a ticket into the professional ranks.

Over the years John has devised many practice routines and after much hard work, has decided to share these great routines with snooker players using this handy app. No matter where you are you will now have a set of practice routines on your phone that will not only provide you with what to practice, but also you’ll be able to score progress.

It’s a wonderful idea that will help the ambitious players fast track positive progress and improvement as a player.



Lessons are linked to YouTube videos and various routines to help progress the skills of each player. There are 7 standard levels helping the beginner to 50 break standard players and then 7 more advanced levels for the half century players and above.

On your journey through the levels, you can keep track of progress by entering your scores onto a leader board; coaches can also manage players progress by entering them for players they are coaching.

You are most welcome to try out Level Three (Click here).


All of the practice challenges are split into 3 main categories:

  • Break building
  • Potting
  • Safety

Some routines are whats known as crossover routines which means they are suitable for all standards of player.

For members who have purchased the app, they can submit their best practice challenge scores of the season so a rating can be calculated.

You are welcome to view the Break Building Practice Challenges (Click here).


All together there are eight line up routines for you to practice your skills. Each of the various routines have been designed to test cue ball control skills with a view to progression and measured improvement.

Again, we follow the theme of recording progress because we want skills to be improved so App members are invited to once again submit their best scores of the season for the Line Ups 1000 challenge.

Please feel free to take a look at the Line Ups 1000 challenge scores – (Click here).
