Our Beginner 10 hour course is designed to show you and develop all the fundamentals of the game. We coach techniques and tactics whilst developing your playing skills with a great bunch of people. Our Goal is for the Beginner courses to give you the basic skills that will allow you to get out and chase the yellow ball for the rest of your life and want more.

Novice
Our Novice 10 hour course will help you improve the basic skills to add consistency and placement to the fundamental skills. Ground strokes, volleys and serves will improve to have you playing at full court. We coach weekly themes on consistency and placement to develop match skills and compete for fun with a great bunch of people. Our Goal is for the Novice Player to know how to practice and improve these skills in fun and play before you take the Novice Plus.

Novice Plus
Novice Plus is where even more fun begins. Top spin for your forehand, slice for the backhand and a consistent serve. Players will be introduced to tactics and strategies for singles and doubles developing your skills in low key competitive play with your classmates. Our Goal is for the Novice Plus player to be able to play a game in almost any social setting and practice and play until they need more. Lower Intermediate and beyond.

Lower Intermediate & Intermediate
Lower Intermediate and Intermediate courses are designed to help you improve skills you already have and add spin, speed and evil to your techniques and tactical planning. Our goal is to get you ready for the Summer Tournaments from Stanley Park to playing the local court champ.
