Steve Daking has long been established as one of the UKs top exhibition players.  Steve first joined the ranks of professional pool players in 1993, three years later he set out on the road and became a full time professional.

Since that time, Steve has taken his trickshot show to a variety of venues all over Europe, including the British Houses of Parliament. He has also made several television appearances including Guinness World Records and Pub Ammo (Channel 5) in which he demonstrated 'the most difficult shot in pool'. Steve also performed as a consultant for many television programmes and adverts, training actors and providing his services as a kind of 'stuntman with a cue'. Credits include commercials for "Gordons Gin","FCUK" and top soap "Eastenders".

In 2003 Steve won the Professional 8 Ball Trickshot Championships televised on Sky TV, a title which he still holds today. In 2006 Steve took a one man show entitled “The Pool Guy” to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Following a successful run, the show was picked up by an Australian producer who took the show to Sydney in 2007 where Steve won the ‘Top Show’ award in the Big Laugh Comedy Festival.

In 2008, Steve was appointed head of coaching at the ‘8 Ball Academy’, writing and delivering the first official coaching courses in the sport. 2009 was spent on on corporate work, and the development of ’8BallCoach.com' and '8BallTrickshots.com'.

Steve is currently working on a new stage show which will be touring sometime in the future.

More recently, Steve has been appointed the first English Pool Association Head of Coaching, and has been tasked with putting in place a network of qualified coaches.
