Your child will learn the basics and how to enjoy the game through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

The skills they will learn are transferable and will help a lot with other sports.

Our classes involve parental participation so that your child will get lots out of the sessions, and it is a great game you can enjoy as a family!

They will learn how to play and score, as well as improving technique and tactics and skills such as coordination, speed, balance and many more.

Personal development

Players can receive stickers and wristbands as reward and recognition for respect, trying hard, achieving certain skills and working well with others in the group.

We have a monthly raffle system where players can earn tickets for the above, and there are also milestones for reaching a certain number of tickets.

Our coaching programme runs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and is not always bookable online, straight away. We believe that players gain the best experience from playing in carefully selected groups.
