With COVID-19 we need to make sure we have availability before you can start.

Click the sign-up button to check availability.

As a member you can mix and match coaching sessions as you wish. You’re welcome to book into different sessions each week.

Due to COVID-19 we have paused our pay per session options.


You just need comfortable clothing and appropriate sports shoes. We provide all training shuttles.

With COVID-19 we can no longer lend out rackets but we can recommend where to buy your own.

Intermediate is a very wide category of players. The best thing to do is come to a session, see how you get on and we can advise you from there. We have groups for every level of player so we’ll definitely have sessions you’ll enjoy.

If you’ve played in a club or a league team on a regular basis we might suggest you move our more advanced training groups. However if you’re keen to work on fundamentals we can keep you in mid-level groups where there’s more focus on basics.

If you have any questions about ability please get in touch here.

With COVID-19 we aren’t running taster sessions as we need to be able to plan for social distancing. To join as a member just get in touch and let us know which session you’re interested in here.
