Academy Squads - Invitation Only

Academy Squads include ideally at least one group session and an individual lesson or double lesson (with another player from their group) per week. Extra matchplay and competition is part of the Academy training - some competitions may require extra payment.

Academy players have to be members, which means they get extra time to practise independently, plus they can earn Senior Status and represent the Club Senior Teams.
