      Confused about which sessions are suitable for your child?

      We don’t blame you! It can be tricky to navigate sports clubs so please just get in touch with us and we can advise what the best options are.

      MEMBERSHIP

      We are accepting new members although there might be waiting lists at sessions. Certain sessions may pause during holidays so after signing up please check the first date.

      As a member you can mix and match coaching sessions as you wish. You’ll have a reserved space at the session(s) you sign-up for but can then cancel and rebook individual dates provided there is space.

      SESSIONS

      They just need comfortable clothing, water bottle and appropriate sports shoes. We provide all training shuttles.

      We can lend out rackets for players at their first sessions but recommend buying their own if they enjoy it. We have a variety of great value rackets for all levels.

      Almost any level or age of player fits into our sessions. At each class we split into groups where players of a similar age and level practise and play together.

      Older junior players (14+) are also welcome to look at our sessions for older players. Players under the age of 8 should look for sessions that have young age limits.
