What about coaching for Adults?

  • Tuesday Adult Cardio (9-10am) is a wonderful way to get fit. It is suitable for all levels and you choose how much of a work out to make it.
  • Thursday  Adult Technique and Tactics (9.30-11am ) is aimed at post improvers and is a great way to build up skills and confidence while also getting to know other people to hit and play with, out with coaching. To see photographs click on the tab at the top of the page.
