Parents please read: Supervision is provided on court during the coaching sessions, but parents should ensure that a responsible adult is present to supervise their children off court, for toilet breaks or other eventualities.

Footwear: Please ensure that your child wears proper sports shoes. School shoes and other non-sports shoes are not allowed on our courts. These shoes will not provide your child with proper grip required and may mark or damage the court surface.
