Junior – Have you ever wanted to learn how to play a twenty shot rally or serve? We give you a racquet and the foam balls, you bring along a smile and bags of enthusiasm and energy. You will be able to rally with friends and challenge an adult to a game at the end of the 5 day course.
Senior- It is a chance for those with some experience of the basics to improve their game and hone their skills. We will work on rallying, serving and competitive play. Why not come along and try some teamwork – doubles, and drills like dingles and red rover will help you improve your game rapidly.
