    group FRIENDLY

    Our coaches will welcome your child, help them get involved and make them feel like one of the team.


    We are accepting new members although there might be a waiting list while we accommodate existing players.

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


    They just need comfortable clothing, water bottle 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.

    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 at our Tiny Rackets sessions here.
