Happy new year folks and I hope you have had a lovely break.  Spring is in the air...I think....so it's time to dust off the rackets and get out on the courts and burn off a few calories;-)

- Classes will only be cancelled if the courts are unplayable. If coaching is cancelled due to bad weather I will offerone refund. In the event of further cancellations I will offer an alternative equivalent class on another day.
